- #1 The Mona Lisa improvement scenario from previous postossibly still under copyright?That would explain why improved version would be questionable.
- #2 The billboard improvement scenario from previous post: Billboard still under copyright,but what if 70 yrs old and public domain?
- #3 The use of public domain for profit.An example I saw just today:A calender "for sale" that was a group of twelve 1930's vintage photos from a library archive(I assume public domain),but is the "compiled group" of public domain photos(the calender) covered by copyright?Thats a hum-dinger huh...,maybe the answer I'm looking for!Copyright a group?
- #4 Copyright when "placed in tangible form",are the negs a tangible form,or the prints?I purchased negatives but no prints and as far as I know they were never printed,surely not publicly at least.Another hum-dinger huh!
|When considering whether or whether to seek intellectual property protection and how to safeguard intellectual property rights, there are numerous aspects to consider. For the vast majority of businesses, identifying intellectual property that corresponds with their fundamental business strategy and determining the best means to protect that intellectual property is essential. All of these considerations may emerge, including whether the company's proprietary advancements should be patentable, copyrighted, or retained as a trade secret, as well as whether to seek any type of protection.|
