Copyright for Crowley's Fiction
Who is the owner of the copyright for Crowley's fiction? I am asking after reading Maria's post.
I mean, some of Crowley's fiction was re-published by different editors after his death. Teitan Press, 93 Publishing...
Wouldnt Diary of a Drug fiend not be under copyright protection as it was written in 1922 (prior to 1923)?
"So when can one conclude that a book is in the public domain? In the United States, all books and other works published before 1923 have expired copyrights and are in the public domain." -(1)
65 & 210,
It appears to me that there is a misunderstanding. Crowley's copyrights have been transferred (legally) according to the Library of Congress. It is true what has been said about the life span of copyrights - but copyright life spans can be renewed (which sums up one of the reasons the OTO went corporate).

and type Crowley, Aleister in the search field.
What an excellent UK resource: thanks!
Owner and Editor
It's a US site referencing US copyright status. Or do you mean a useful resource for those of us in the UK?
Also interesting to see that there are also a Moonchild and a Diary of a Drug Fiend screenplay copyrighted...
