This thread is prompted by comments on the 'Swallowdale - Explanation' thread below.

I'd like some information from someone in the know about copyright, please. My (sketchy) reading about copyright and the Berne Convention would appear to show that copyright in a written work generally expires 50 years after the author's death.

Does that means that copyright in AR's works will expire in three days' time? Or if not, why not?
