Question 9: Paragraph 273, pp. 60-61: Are foreign works that were still protected in their country of origin, but were in the public domain in Tajikistan in 1998 because the 25 year term had expired, protected in Tajikistan? For example, how long would a US work created In 1965 by an author who died in 2000 be protected in Tajikistan?
Tajikistan's reply: Amendments to the Law on Copyright and Neighboring Rights that were adopted in 2009 included provisions on retroactive effect, thus enabling the protection in Tajikistan of foreign works that were still protected in their country of origin, but were in the public domain in Tajikistan in 1998 because the 2S year term had expired. In the example above the work will be protected in Tajikistan 50 years after the death of its U.S. author, i.e. until 2050.
