- Jul 2, 2001I actually ended up asking a lawyer because I had to call the Student
Advocate here about a car repair shop that killed my engine (and the call
is free, so why not :)
Anyway, she says a 1922 copyright (unless extended by an act of Congress
you don't know about) is expired, period. She also points out that Mickey
(who's a bit of a special case anyway) was renewed before his copyright
ran out, 2003 if Magnus has the right date. So in principle, if you
posted a WWI-era article today, and congress extended the copyright later,
your use would have occured while the copyright laxed.
However, as Melanie pointed out, anybody can sue anyone for anything, but
the web and the academic nature of the posting are natural protections.
But thanks for the exensive post, Magnus... I learned more than I would
have learned from the article, and I'll try to ILL it.
