The Peter Pan copyright

Usually a copyright expires after X amount of years beyond the date of the owner's death. However, in the case of the play, "Peter Pan," by Sir James Matthew Barrie, who decided while still living that he wished for the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children to receive the royalties from his play, Parliament has decided to extend the royalties period indefinitely. The legislation regarding the royalties plan can be found here.
