I didn’t know that J.M. Barrie had left the copyright of Peter Pan to the Great Ormond Street children’s hospital in London. Hoping to raise even more money, the hospital is launching a search for a new Peter Pan.
In 1988, parliament gave Great Ormond Street what amounts to perpetual copyright in UK revenues from the stage play first performed in 1904. But the hospital is planning ahead to the expiry in 2023 of the US copyright, which generates its film revenue.
