    Copyright Question?

    Ok, here is my question. I would like to publish a small booklet of Norse myths, nothing special, but it will have ISBN and be officially released (so it is not underground release), and I must off course respect copyright. I want to use many images, for examples those of Konstantin Vasiliev and others. For that reason I would like to know is it allowed to publish a image in your book. Those that I want to use are about 50 years old and are scanned versions of original art. So can somebody explain me is such thing allowed, what are the limitations etc... Thanks in advance.

    Example of image I would like to use:
    Vasiliev, Wotan, 1969.

    As a general rule, for works created after January 1, 1978, copyright protection lasts for the life of the author plus an additional 70 years. For an anonymous work, a pseudonymous work, or a work made for hire, the copyright endures for a term of 95 years from the year of its first publication or a term of 120 years from the year of its creation, whichever expires first. For works first published prior to 1978, the term will vary depending on several factors. To determine the length of copyright protection for a particular work, consult chapter 3 of the Copyright Act (title 17 of the United States Code). More information on the term of copyright can be found in Circular 15a, Duration of Copyright, and Circular 1, Copyright Basics.

    In order to help with your question I think people might want to know what country you are from. Laws could be different from place to place.

    A good way to do that is to fill out your profile with as much information as possible

    Another way is start a introduction thread, so that members can know a little about you and can relate to your questions.

    This is the link to make a introduction thread:

    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.
