Duration of Copyright
The laws of copyright apply to works which are still within the period of copyright protection. Material which is out of copyright is said to be in the 'public domain' and may be used freely. The laws of copyright apply to works which are still within the period of copyright protection. As a result of the Australia/US Free Trade Agreement (AUSTFA) the duration of copyright in artworks has changed significantly. Under new rules, photographs that were protected by copyright on 1 January 2005, or which have been created on or after this date, are protected by new copyright laws under the AUSFTA.
Photographs taken before 1 January 1955 are out of copyright and are not affected by these new rules.
