What are the copyright laws that are applied to a 1963 Qigong text in Chinese

← Return to forum

  • i would like to write about a Chinese Qigong book that is being translated. It was published in 1963; all the main authors have died.

    some material I’ve read suggests that copyright laws in China did not apply to works from 1963. Other suggest I should follow ‘fair use’ practices.

    i could use help in getting this cleared up.

    thanks in advance.

  • Hello Kevin:

    I don't believe we have anyone qualified to answer this question (chinese copyright) and/or the time to investigate it.  I do not believe that fair use is an elemnt of Chinese copyright law.

    Others may have ideas.
