Dear mr Auslander,
I want to use pictures made in 1483 by Erhard Reuwich, a painter and woodcarver. I want to use these pictures as a decoration for a website that I am making for my uncle who is a partner in an organization advice consultancy in the Netherlands. Since I am not familiair with copyrights whatsoever, I was wondering if the rule that sais that work prior to 1923 belongs to the public domain, also applies under Dutch law.
: Dear Heather Hubbard,
: You are to be commended for your caution. The Register of Copyrights has a notice that all works prior to 1923 are public domain. Leave it to the law though. Reproductions are contemporaneously registerable under the copyright law.
