LXer: Anne Frank foundation moves to keep famous diary copyrighted for 35 more years

Published at LXer:

The diary of Anne Frank is just six weeks away from entering the public domain in most of Europeóbut it might not happen. The Basel-based Anne Frank Fonds, which owns the copyright, has a plan to retain ownership until 2050......Most European copyrights end 70 years after the author's death, meaning that on Jan. 1, 2016, the diary becomes public domain in much of the continent. But the Anne Frank foundation has a new legal strategy to keep its most valuable copyright: declare that Otto Frank is actually a "co-author" of the diaries, not merely an editor. Since Otto Frank died in 1980, anything he authored will stay under copyright until 2050...
