Just a curiosity: after how many years does publications become public (cannot be kept behind a paywall anymore)?

Some journals have in their copyright transfer some text regarding when the article becomes open access.

When that is not the case, I would expect that copyright laws apply, and the articles might become public domain after a certain period defined in law, see e.g.: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries%27_copyright_lengths
