How Long Does Copyright Last?

Generally speaking, in Australia, copyright in music and lyrics lasts for the life of the creator plus 70 years. Copyright in a sound recording usually lasts for 70 years from when the recording was first published. In New Zealand, these terms are 50 years. There are exceptions to these rules and if you are uncertain as to the duration of copyright in a work, seek legal advice.
