  1. excavatedshellac.com: The label Opika was based in the Belgian Congo, and is equally as important as the Congolese labels Ngoma and Loningisa, and just as rewarding to track down. It’s not clear from my research how long Opika lasted as a company, but probably not much further than the mid- to late 1950s., Link to the record

In Germany, this recording right is called "Leistungsschutz" and lasts for 50 years from the date the work was created. In the USA, it only applies to recordings "fixed" before February 15, 1972 (See Template:PD-US-record). For recordings from Italy, see Template:PD-Italy-audio. Other countries may have differing legislation.


Public domain This work is in the public domain because its copyright has expired.

This applies the European Union and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 70 years and a copyright term of 70 years after the first publishing date.

Dialog-warning.png Note that a few countries have copyright terms longer than 70 years: Mexico has 100 years, Colombia has 80 years, and Guatemala and Samoa have 75 years, Russia has 74 years for some authors. This image may not be in the public domain in these countries, which moreover do not implement the rule of the shorter term. Côte d'Ivoire has a general copyright term of 99 years and Honduras has 75 years, but they do implement the rule of the shorter term.
