Who owns the copyright to Service's poems and novels?

Copyright: We have had several people contact us on this subject. Service's work, Canada is an area of public domain, as it has been 50 years since Robert passed on.

With reference to the United States public domain covers works originating before 1923 and later works have a 95 year duration from first publication.

However the European Union inclusive of the United Kingdom continues copyright protection for 70 years after death. Other foreign territories vary as between 50 and 70 year and can be investigated on a case by case basis.
