How long does copyright last?

In the UK and many other countries, copyright generally lasts for a minimum of life of the ‘author’ plus 70 years for most types of written, dramatic and artistic works. For other types of works such as films, broadcasts and recordings, the length of protection may vary.

How we can help

We help you to identify, retain and exploit the rights that you have created or paid for others to create. We can put you in touch with royalty collection agencies, provide advice on licensing arrangements and, given the duration of copyright protection, advise you on what happens to your rights when you die.
