Friday 15 Sep 2006: Peter Pan copyright
The Scottish novelist and playwright J.M. Barrie donated the copyright for his stage play and novel "Peter Pan" to Great Ormond Street Hospital in London in 1929 to provide the children's hospital with a steady source of income. Although the EU copyright will end in 2007, an amendment to the Copyright Act 1988 gave Great Ormond Street the unique right to royalties from stage performances of Peter Pan (and any adaptation of the play) forever in the UK.
