: I want to copy family photos. Some are more than 100 years old. Several were done in the 60s at a studio that is still in business. Must I get the studio's permission? How long do copyrights on professionally-taken photos last? Thx.
Dear E Haupt,
My present understanding is that all copyright rights in the US before 1923 are in the Public Domain.
