: Could anybody please advise on the law regarding the use of newspaper articles from 1914-1919 for a piece of work that will be published.
Dear M. Pollit,
Without taking professional responsibility, it is my understanding that within the US there are no valid copyrights outstanding prior to 1923. Part of the hesitation is that there can be a valid copyright on a reproduction of a public domain work.
