|The general period for copyright on the URAA date of Jan 1, 1996 in France was 50 years after the death of the author. However, France enacted wartime extensions: 8 years and 120 days for works published before January 1, 1948 that were not in the public domain on August 13, 1941 and a 30-year addition for authors who "died for France" as recorded in the death certificate. Therefore if a French author died in 1937, their work would have entered the public domain on April 30, 1996, after the URAA date. So the works of any French author who died 1937 or later remain copyrighted in the United States if published 1923 or later. Moreover, the works of any French author who died 1914 or later and is designated as having "died for France" remain in copyright in the United States if published 1923 or later.
