GUEST,Mark are translations copyrighted? (4) RE: are translations copyrighted? 17 Jun 06


If there was a public domain song, and a guy translated it, and the translator died in 1989, how long do I need to wait in order for the translation to be public domain (i.e. if I wanted to transcribe and submit the song to or something)? However, the translation may be owned by a company, and so I'm not sure if it'll ever become public domain.
