The USB 2. specification has a maximum cable length of around five meters. I have run cables to near that distance without issues but it was for low drain devices (keyboard, mice).
I've been able to get some devices to work OK with 10 foot cables. I know the spec says around 15 feet, but like you say, mice, keyboards, printers, are usually OK. I couldn't get a powered USB antenna to work with a 6 foot cable (it came packed with a 3 footer), so your mileage may vary.....
