I wish to re-write an old novel, updating it. What are the copyright restrictions?


A young adult novel published 50 years ago made a HUGE impression on me. I strongly believe it has great validity today, and so could use numerous updates to make it more current for teens. What do I need to know regarding copyrights, if I were to re-write it to make it current? I would only change certain details, i.e., instead of pen pals, the main character would interact on FaceBook. Please help me out here - thanks!
