So here’s a question for you. Without getting too specific, there’s something really freaking awesome on the internet (ha – how’s that for a tease?) and I’d love to link to it, but my understanding is that the copyright is still in place, and therefore the amount of data available on Ye Olde Internet is copyright infringement. And unless you’re a secretary who works at midnight, I try to avoid sending the Bitchery eyes toward things that cut off someone’s copyright at the knees.
The item in question was published in 1965, and appears to be out of print. One chart I found states that items published in that year have a term of copyright described as follows: “28 yrs first term, automatic extension 67 more years for second term.” Getting out my trusty Calc.exe program, that yields a 95 year copyright.
Another item from Cornell supports that figure, so it would seem that anything published in the US in 1965 is still under copyright protection. Am I wrong? Math skills, I do not has them.
So yeah, something cool is on the internet. What else is new?
