This work is in the public domain because it was published in the United States between 1923 and 1963 and although there may or may not have been a copyright notice, the copyright was not renewed. Unless its author has been dead for the required period, it is copyrighted in the countries or areas that do not apply the rule of the shorter term for US works, such as Canada (50 pma), Mainland China (50 pma, not Hong Kong or Macao), Germany (70 pma), Mexico (100 pma), Switzerland (70 pma), and other countries with individual treaties. See Commons:Hirtle chart for further explanation.
|United States copyright law does not protect sound recordings fixed before February 15, 1972. Most U.S. states protect the common law copyright to these recordings, but this principle has so far only been applied regarding copyright in New York. Uploading, downloading, or copying the file in New York State may constitute infringement of copyright. On February 15, 2067, United States copyright law will supersede state law and the recording will enter the public domain. (see Capitol Records vs. Naxos.)
Recordings of copyrighted musical compositions etc., cannot be freely used, but it is asserted that this sound recording not based on copyrighted material can currently be considered public domain in the United States generally, except in New York, and in other countries where it has not been separately copyrighted. Files bearing this tag may be deleted in the future, depending on the outcome of community discussions and new case law. If you are the copyright holder of this sound recording and do not wish to have it hosted on Commons, please contact our designated agent.
1. Sound recordings of foreign (non-U.S.) origin may be copyrighted under United States copyright law by virtue of the URAA even if the recording was fixed before February 15, 1972. Such recordings should not be uploaded to Commons unless the recording was licensed under a free license by the copyright holder or is in the public domain. This template should not be used for recordings that are copyrighted via the URAA.
