Near the top of the article it says "120 years after creation or 95 years after publication, whichever endpoint is earlier." Can anyone explain the difference between creation and publication here?? Georgia guy (talk) 21:33, 13 May 2014 (UTC)
Creation is the time the work is created. For example, if I write a short story in 2011 and put it in a drawer, it was created in 2011, but is not published. If a couple years later, I pull it out and have it published in 2013, it has a 2013 publication date. "Publication" essentially means distribution to the public; it can be a little more complicated than that (see the definition of "publication" in 17 USC § 101), but that's the gist of it).

I removed this image since it has no reliable source origin. It's just some individual's artwork that got uploaded to Commons. That's out of scope for this project. —Designate (talk) 16:03, 5 July 2014 (UTC)
The article says in 1923 or afterwards that were still protected by copyright in 1998 will not enter the public domain until 2019 or afterward (depending on the date of the product). But this contradicts the "will be in the public domain after 95 years", because 2019 - 1923 = 96, not 95. Georgia guy (talk) 17:54, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
