>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.
Yes but in European law your use after extension would possibily not be
valid. Also if the article was a European one our copyright should overide
any US law
>However, as Melanie pointed out, anybody can sue anyone for anything, butthe web and the academic nature of the posting are natural protections.
Not natural but they make sueing not as commercially attractive :)
