  1. Copyright is obviously a bit of a minefield but I have a question ! I bought a print, initially to copy and put on the wall of my old farmhouse in Hungary, which I will still do, but the quality is so good and so detailed that it would be fine for Alamy via the archival route. It is an original print that has a postcard type layout printed on the back. It was taken by a Hungarian photographer in the 1930s who has been deceased for more than 70 years. A small signature is on the print and obviously I would attribute his name in the title and tags. There are also other images by this photographer being used online buy not the image I have. Whilst he has been deceased for more than 70 years, I am also aware that copyright can be passed on to a heir or heirs so I have been trying to find out if it applies in this instance. Somebody in a Facebook group I am with asked a similar question and I answered as above regarding the 70 year rule ... but was then answered by someone who said that I was almost correct but not fully ... she said "The material rights part can be passed on, not the personal rights". She then went on to say that she is a lawyer who deals with copyright litigation. Now, I am not going to take the word of a stranger on Facebook and get bitten somewhere down the line so, the question is, has anybody else heard of a difference between material and personal rights because I have never heard of them and Google is no help either !!
