: : : I would like to purchase a print off of ebay of Thomas Jefferson. It is a Peale print. Can I publish it? If not what do I need to do to get permission? What if I find an old photo that doesn't have any information but the photographer? The photo is over 100 years old.
: : : What are the rules on usuage on these old photos if everyone is dead?
: Provided that you have a copy of the photo/print that is in the public domain (and not a reproduction that was contained in a book that is currently protected under copyright), you can likely use the photo/print without peril.
