English: Photo of Don Adams as Maxwell Smart, with infamous "shoe phone".
  • On the first photo, there's a date but no author information. On the second, GAC is listed as Adams' management was using the image for publicity purposes, but the seller did not offer a scan of the photo back. Combining the two results in both an author and a useful date for PD-pre 1978 license purposes. Neither of these have any copyright marks.
  • United States Copyright Office page 2 "Visually Perceptible Copies The notice for visually perceptible copies should contain all three elements described below. They should appear together or in close proximity on the copies.
