Do copyright laws exist for countries that no longer exist?

Hi,

Were someone to take a sample from a track from a communist state recording (say Yugoslavia) in which the state no longer exists, would it be subject to lawful protection? If so, whose law and how could it be enforced? I'm only thinking of Europe.

newer states which formed after a breakup are assignees so copyrights should still/again be covered...

Let's say it was the state recording company. Like the National Yugoslavian Record Label. Yugoslavia broke into a bunch of countries. So could anyone claim rights? And to who?

Tell the exact record label and then we can tell you.

Jugoton is now Croatia Records, PGP-RTB still exists as PGP RTS etc.
