keops: i believe there is a time limit for the software to become abandonware, once it was stopped beeing commercialized for 17 years or something. dont know the exact rule and to what countries it applies. eitherway, im in no mood to have another piracy is cancer discussion and stanz provided new links for the extracted cracktros so lets just replace them.

It's something like 95 years for a corporate if I am not mistaken, not 17.

Generally, for works created in 1978 or later, a copyright lasts for
fifty years beyond the life of the work's author, after which it lapses
into public domain. 17 U.S.C. 302(a). If the work is prepared by two or
more authors (a "joint work"), its copyright lasts for fifty years after
the last surviving author dies. 17 U.S.C. 302(b). For anonymous and
pseudonymous works, and for works made for hire, copyright exists for 100
years from the date of creation, or 75 years from the date of first
publication, whichever comes first. 17 U.S.C. 302(c). No renewal is
necessary or permitted. (The year 1978 in this paragraph is because
January 1, 1978 is the date on which the Copyright Act of 1976 took


I suppose games are "works made for hire", so keep warez away from pouët unless the game is 100 years old.

thats length in time for copyright to turn into public domain.. we aint trying to snatch copyright. just the distribution right.. anyways, im no expert on the matter.

ps: abandonware is illegal until the copyright drops off.
ok then

Oh shit, the scene starts caring about copy rights. Tint will never be the same again ...

On a sidenote, it's pretty sick, that a "work" might be copyrighted for 140 years or more (done when the author was 20, author dies at the age of 90, copyright ends 70 years after author's death). Let's wait what happens when Micky Mouse will reach the critical border (again). Disney copies from many classic authors (f.e. Brothers Grimm) but doesn't want other people copy their classic stuff ...
tribe: actually, that's US copyright law, which does not apply here in holland (and therefore to the scene.org server).


chapter 3 (articles 37-42) is about the duration of the copyright. in short: it's even worse than what you quoted- even for joint works, it lasts 70 years.

if the makers are unknown: 70 years after date of first publication
if the makers are known: 70 years after death of the copright holder
if the makers are known and it's a film: 70 years after the the last to die of the director, scenariowriter, dialoguewriter and musiccomposer
