When a copyright has ended and books that I have written have been passed down to my children's children and their children, why does the book become a public domain. Why can anyone just publish that book. Surely at the end of the 70 years the then owners of the book still own that book and must still have rights to the ownership. How can I ensure that what ever family member ends up with my work, that they keep sole ownership of that copyright.
