A Note on United States Copyright Law US copyright law is found in Title 17 of the United States Code and is administered by the US Copyright Office. As with all law, Title 17 can only be interpreted by an attorney, but an out-of-date version of Title 17 is included on the copyright office web site. "Terms for Copyright Protection", a U.S. Government publication, summarizes the current duration of copyright protection for published works as follows:
Works registered before 1/1/1978 - 95 years from the date copyright was secured - works registered in 1905 entered public domain 1/1/2001.
Works already in the public domain - copyright protection not restored and works remain in the public domain.
Prior to the 1998 term extension, copyright protection for works registered before 1/1/1978 was 75 years; therefore, compositions registered in 1922 or earlier entered the public domain on 1/1/1998. The 1998 copyright extension did not restore copyright protection to materials already in the public domain.
U.S. Code Title 17 Sec. 107. - Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use
Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include -
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors
