Author talk:James Joyce

Why can't Finnegans Wake be included? Is there a copyright reason or is it the simple difficulty of getting the book on wikisource? I know it might be easier for readers if wikisource had the book and not the page the reader is directed to.

It's still under copyright in the US and Britain.--Prosfilaes (talk) 02:06, 16 December 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yes, it is under copyright. See here.

I think USA and UK follow the rule life+70 years of copyright protection (I'm not a lawyer myself and this isn't legal advice).
So Finnegans Wake might be in the public domain now (copyright having expired on Jan 1st, 2012). --Ousia (talk) 20:37, 4 January 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
