The Rider-Waite tarot deck:
The Rider-Waite tarot deck, originally published in 1909, is widely considered the most popular tarot deck for tarot card reading. The cards were drawn by illustrator Pamela Colman Smith from the instructions of academic and mystic Arthur Edward Waite and were originally published by the Rider Company.
In the United Kingdom, copyright in the artwork for the deck expired 70 years after the end of the year in which Waite died, i.e. after 31st December 2012. In countries with a 50 years posthumous terms (e.g. Australia, Canada, etc.) the copyright expired after 31st December 1992. In the United States, the deck fell into the public domain in 1966 (publication + 28 years + renewed 28 years), and thus has been available for use by American artists in numerous different media projects. U.S. Games Systems has a copyright claim on their updated version of the deck published in 1971, but this only covers new material added to the pre-existing work (e.g. designs on the card backs and the box).
