However, Dale, don't lose all hope: CW died in 1945, so his copyrights will expire fairly soon, on 1 January 2016.Does this hold true for British copyright law? I know there are differences between the US and the UK on this topic but haven't ever quite been able to figure it out.
There are also ways of doing spin offs while a work is still inside of copyright, but I think that involves appealing to the copyright holders for permission (and allowing them some form of compensation). I suspect for most books, it's not worth the effort or money -- and is better to wait. :)-Alana
