The Copyright Act only protects works for a specific time. After this period of protection, permission is no longer required from the author. Copyright is valid during the lifetime of the author and 70 years after the year of the author's death. Use of works whose period of protection has expired is free, with the exception of the Ministry of Education prohibition of any use that is offensive to cultural interests.
