Copyrighting Q&A

1.)  How many minutes can you legally use of a song in a school project?

You can’t even use minutes, you can only use 30 seconds.

2.)  Can you download music and videos from the Internet?

You can if it’s not copyrighted or if the artist is willing to let you. Most artists would rather you purchase the music. This site is very helpful on the subject.

3.)  How long does Copyright last?

Copyright lasts as long as the person (that created it) is living, plus 70 years after death.

4.)  Does a copyright work ever become free to use?

Yes, after the 70 years after death, the work is free and public.
