Template:PD-RO-1956

Public domain According to the Decree no. 321/1956 of June 18, 1956 Chapter 1 Article 7, the encyclopedias, dictionaries and corpora achieved between 1956 and 1996 benefit from intellectual property protection during a limited term, as follows:
  • (a) 20 years since issuance for the author(s) of encyclopedias, dictionaries and corpora

Of the aforementioned works, those whose term hadn't expired before 1996 received a considerable prolongation, according to the Romanian Law on Copyright and Neighboring Rights Law no. 8/1996 of March 14, 1996 Article 149, Paragraph 3:

  • works created by authors who died before the enforcement of this law and whose term of intellectual property protection has not expired yet shall have the term lengthened to that provided in this law.

Therefore, Romanian dictionaries, encyclopedias and corpora whose protection term expired before 1996 are now in the public domain. These include dictionaries, encyclopedias and corpora issued between 1956 and 1976.
