: A project is under consideration to use antique postcards and maps to create a collage, for mass production. The manufacturer of most of the postcards is not know, and the same with the map. Can these be used without permission? What is the duration of copywright protection if any exists for 90-130 year old documents?
At present copyrights must be registered within one hundred years. Duration is life of the author plus 70 years.
Care must be taken not to copy from a copyrighted reproduction.
How much is this freebee worth to you?
