I have an ad which originally appeared in a magazine in 1954. The company was owned by Jergens, which has been bought out by a Japanese company.
I want to use the image for my own advertising use. But I am really confused about how to search for the copyright info on the image.
Would I search on the company name that the photo was advertising? Or check under Jergens?
Also, what is copyright law as far as advertising images go? when do they enter the public domain?
