Copyright status of Robert E. Howard story
« on: 11-21-17 at 01:27 pm »

Hi,

I'm having some trouble finding out the copyright status of one of Robert E. Howard's stories: "Pigeons from Hell". On Wikisource it's listed as "Copyrighted in the United States until 2034 due to Renewal R369102", while underneath there's a link to Bibliowiki stating that "The copyright has expired because the registration was filed by an incorrect entity and thus invalidated".

I see that the story is listed under several public domain websites, and have been released as e-books on Amazon, Google Books, Barnes & Noble etc. with the notice "The copyright has expired because the registration was filed by an incorrect entity and thus invalidated."

So, I'm confused..is it public domain, or was the copyright renewed until 2034? Does anyone know where I might be able to find some accurate info about its copyright status?
