Post-1923 printings of work originally published before 1923
- October 12, 2010 @ 2:11pmRuthDukelow says:The work published prior to 1923 would be in the public domain even if reprinted after 1923 (assuming the "reprint" is a facsimile of the original pre-1923 work and not a revised edition or derivative work).
If a pre-1923 published work was republished as a revised edition with new original material added after 1922, the new edition could be protected by copyright, even if the first edition is now in the public domain. [Note: not all materials published after 1922 are protected by copyright - see the Public Domain chart for guidance: http://copyright.cornell.edu/resources/publicdomain.cfm ]
