: I am interested in producing a derivative work from a pre 1978 act record album cover. I can find no notice except for (P) on the back. Since this is notice for phonorecord medium and not viual art medium is the cover art public domain. I notice that most of my old record albums don't have the (C) and many don't even have the (P) notice. Why?
The question is to abstruse for a quick free answer.
Just be careful.
