    History and Background
    1710 in England, Statute of Anne
    “An act for the encouragement of learning, by vesting
    the copies of printed books in the authors or
    purchasers of such copies, during the times therein
    mentioned.” This law gave book publishers 14 years of
    legal protection from the copying of their books by
    others.”

    When and where does it happen and what is
    copyrightable, and for how long?
    ● Referring to “Aquiring Essential Knowledge – An
    Overview” in section 2.1 of “Copyright Basics”.
    ● Copyright is automatic from when the work is fixed in a
    medium.
    ● Copyrights last “a long time”, decades after the death of
    the creator.
    ● In general the law of where the work is used applies.

    But I just want to use a little bit...
    The Berne Convention first established the concept of “fair”
    use, by providing the following in Article 9 section 2. This is
    known as the “three-step” test, and has been adopted in some
    form in several other treaties.
    “It shall be a matter for legislation in the countries of the Union
    to permit the reproduction of such works in certain special
    cases, provided that such reproduction does not conflict with a
    normal exploitation of the work and does not unreasonably
    prejudice the legitimate interests of the author. “
