  • The image was published as an advertisement in the U.S. in 1927. There is no evidence that copyright notice was originally filed on the image, as then required. For instance, this image evidently shows the entire poster and no copyright notice.
  • A search of copyright renewal records for 1954 and 1955 ([1], [2], [3], [4]) reveals no evidence that Warner Bros. renewed copyrights to this poster or any collection of posters or any collection of material that might encompass this poster as would have been required to maintain copyright protection, if any.
  • There is no evidence that Warner Bros. or its parent company, Time Warner, claims copyright on the image.
