Subject: The Internet and Copyright

How old does a text have to be before it can be posted to the WWW?
In other words, at what point does copyright no longer apply? It looks as
if texts from the ninteenth century and before are exempt (at least from
the number of them posted), but are texts from the early years of this
century also now exempt?
Thanks for any advice.
