- Feb 19, 2013That's really interesting Greg, thanks for the link!
Following up at that page... it seems that two Ace paperbacks by Chip are
now 'public domain' in the US? They're copyright by Ace Books (not Samuel
R. Delany) in 1962 and 1963, which makes them 51 and 50 years old
respectively. In the file itself, it says "Extensive research did not
uncover any evidence that the U.S. copyright on this publication was
(This is of course the Ace version only not any later or earlier edition
copyright by Samuel R. Delany.)
According to this page:
This is legit:
1923 through 1963
Published with notice but copyright was not
None. In the public domain due to copyright expiration
HOWEVER! It looks like these are the only such works by Chip that are thus
affected -- copyright law changes in the US in 1964:
1964 through 1977
Published with notice
95 years after publication date
So it looks like these will be the only such "public domain" works from Ace
Books that will exist for another 45 years or so.
