Thanks Carol

Can one of the Wiki Admin's update the Cover Art wiki with this resource?

They would still require research - it doesn't mean they are PD in the USA.
I'd prefer the resources listed in the wiki were PD for LV.

The BL says they are from books published in the 17, 18 and 19th centuries. That puts all of them before 1900.

I guess I am missing how they could [not] be PD in the US . . .

The Film Noir movies are dated 1939, 1950, 1954, and so forth.
Why are they Public Domain?

Because the BRITISH library obviously adheres to European copyright, which extends to authors/translators death + 70 years; or sometimes depending on the publication, publication date + 70 years. I think films are protected for 50 years after their first public screening only, but I am not sure.

It works both ways Ann,

We Europeans have to check that whatever is in the wiki and PD for LV is also PD for us.
A little research never did anyone any harm. :wink:

Of course, there are still hundreds of thousands of images in the British Library Archives that are PD for LV

If any copywrite owner puts a book/song/... in the public domain, then it really shouldn't matter where the jurisdiction is. The argument about jurisdiction is only where law DEEMS the work to be in the public domain. There is stuff that is created right now that is in the public domain.
