This film or image from a film is now in the public domain because its term of copyright has expired in Mainland China, Macau, and Taiwan (but not necessarily Hong Kong per warning below).

A cinematographic work, a work created by virtue of an analogous method of film production or a photographic work is copyrighted for 50 years since the first publication in Mainland China, Macau (photographic works copyrighted 25 years from completion), and Taiwan according to article 21 of 3 Term of Protection for Rights Copyright Law of the People's Republic of China, Decree-Law 43/99/M of August 16, 1999 of Macau, and Article 30 of the Copyright Act of the Republic of China in effect in Taiwan.
