SIR—This is a response to Eva Musana's letter “Please educate me about copyright laws” in yesterday’s New Vision. First, copyrights don't expire. Second, copyrights apply only to contents and not subject matter. For any piece of work to be copyright, it must qualify as “an original piece of work”. Names and titles are not considered to be original pieces of work and as such they have no copyright. Hence, though you would be plagiarising if you wrote another Sowing the Mustard Seed. Although the author may sue you for copyright infringement, it will be for the contents of the book and not its title. Kenneth Ongalo-Obote, Lugazi 23 Gray Lane, Falmouth, MA kenobote@yahoo.com
