: I was recently informed that the fasimile photograph of
: a 16th century manuscript folio which is in
: a book published 8 years ago in Italy does not fall under
: copyright protection and can be duplicated for use in
: other works. Can anyone substantiate this claim, or
: point me towards the relevant sections in US copyright law?
I'm not going to research this but I have obtained copyrights on reproductions of of works of art. I think you could be in deep trouble copying.
