Hello folks,

Is anyone knowledgeable about Chinese copyright law - specifically as regards books?

I am looking at translating a book and am wondering where I might find more information about the legalities involved as I'll be making a proposal to a publisher shortly. (Please don't say 'Wikipedia'...)

As I understand it, Chinese copyright law is life of author + 50 years, can anyone confirm this? My author died during WW2, but I need to be sure that I can use the current editions freely.

Thanks!
