A work enjoys copyright protection as soon as it is created, whether or not it has been fixed on a physical medium. The term of copyright protection is 50 to 70 years starting from the end of the calendar year of the author's death. In the case of computer programs, copyright protection expires 50 years from the end of the calendar year of the author's death.
