I am trying to gain non-exclusive, one time rights to an old photograph. This photo appears on numerous web sites and I have contacted them all, yet no one has the rights to it. Clearly, this photo is being used without permission. The question is, at what point does a photo become public domain, I have no way of knowing how old the photo is, except I can guess it's less than 75 years old. Any information on the legal issues involved here would be greatly appreciated.
