Copyright status[edit]

There is no evidence of any copyright notice on this monument. Public artworks from before 1978 are subject to the same copyright laws as published U.S. works, such as books and magazines. This means they have fallen into the public domain per U.S. law UNLESS there was an explicit notice of copyright on the work, AND the copyright was filed, AND subsequent renewals of copyright were correctly filed in the decades since. Moreover, visual works made before 1965 were required to have a copyright notice placed on them, in the form of a copyright symbol and the name or initials of the copyright holder, in order to be covered under copyright. This public monument has no such copyright notice, and is therefore in the public domain. This is also not a private artwork, but a public one and exhibited in a public place. Thank you.
