Was just thinking about putting a Pizza Time Easter Egg in a game I was gonna put on itch io and did some research.
So, if I were to make a game with the Spider Man 2 Pizza Theme in it, and sell it on itch, I wouldn’t violate copyright laws because the original song, Funiculi Funicula, was composed by Luigi Denza, who died in 1922. Before 1978, anything with a patent on it would become public domain 50 years after the creator’s death, but in 1978, a law extending that 50 years to 70 years was put into effect. 50 years after Luigi Denza’s death would be 1972, 6 years before the law was put in that says that the 50 years has been extended to 70.
yes i know this is a waste of time but i just wanted to share this knowlege
