  • Off Topic – Copyrights for 70s Books

    Posted by Ace Billet on April 3, 2005 at 7:46 pm

    I want to make a video using some images from Science Tests books (for children),
    a lot of 70s hand drawn art.

    How problematic is the issue, from the law point of view ?
    Im working in a small market (Israel) but the video might go to M2 (Europe) at some point.

    i maybe be able to get the local publisher approval for using the pics,
    but I want to know what people know (or think) about this.

    You should have a good look at the copyright notice page in the book, some books will have specific copyright covering certain kinds of usage. Failing that there’s the slightly stickier notion of substantially reworking (re-interpreting?) from the source material, afaik that maaay legitimise usage…

    Isn’t there a 25 year threshold for this type of thing?
    There are two thresholds one is 25 years and the other is 50 years, one is for music and one is for printed material, but I cant remember which way round they are?
