Works created from 1923 to 1963 had to be actively renewed when their first term expired to take advantage of the second, extended copyright period.

For all practical purposes, a vigilantly protected trademark can be renewed indefinitely. A copyright, on the other hand, will eventually expire, although the current laws provide for many years of protection.

They do.

I hold in my grubby hands a Mini Omega which followed me home from NARAM. It clearly states "Design by Mike Dorffler"
