Bill to expand copyright on photographs to life-plus-70 years introduced In Argentine Congress

Bill No. 2517-D-2015 has been introduced to the Argentine Congress to reform the Argentine Copyright Act (Law No. 11.723) in order to extend copyright on photographs to life plus 70 years post mortem auctoris. The current period of protection for photographs in Argentina is 20 years since publication. In case the Bill is passed, it will have retroactive effect; photographs that currently are in the public domain will revert to private property.
