Submission + - First few Doctor Who episodes may fall to public domain next year

wmr89502270 writes: Doctor Who is celebrating its 50th anniversery this year. The special The Day of The Doctor will be brocast simultaneously in over 75 countries and hundreds of cinemas in the UK and across the world also plan to screen the hotly anticipated special episode simultaneously in full 3D. Accroding to Copyright law of the United Kingdom, the copyright in a broadcast programme expires 50 years from the end of the year in which it is broadcast, which means the first episodes will fall to public domain next year.
