Deletion of page[edit]

(first two comments copied from WS:COPYVIO discussion of The Lottery) Later note. This has been previously deleted. I have amended the text on the author page to {{copyright-until}}. We may wish to consider deletion of Author:Shirley Jackson as there are no works in place, and unlikely to be any for many years. -- billinghurst (talk) 20:34, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

The story would become PD in 2045 in the US, 2016 in life + 50 countries. Keeping such author pages with information about how long copyrights will last is useful. Eclecticology - the offended (talk) 08:25, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
She was an American author who published between 1938 and 1965. Every scrap published before 1964 had to be renewed; there is something out there where the paperwork was forgotten. Not her most major work, unsurprisingly, but the first renewal I'm seeing is in 1943, so at least her early stuff should be available.--Prosfilaes (talk) 19:51, 18 September 2009 (UTC)
Added {{Copyright author}} template on prominent position on the page, per discussion at WS:COPYVIO. Should template:Populate be removed too? ResScholar (talk) 05:02, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
The Syracusan, the Syracuse University journal, has a couple of early unrenewed works, but virtually all the magazines she published in renewed, and she renewed a lot of stuff, so it will be pretty hard to find anything.--Prosfilaes (talk) 07:10, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
