Public domain The text and illustrations of US patents published before March 1, 1989 are in the public domain unless the patent text contains a specific notice that portions are copyrighted. See 37 CFR 1.71(d), 37 CFR 1.84(s)

The original patent contains no such notice, so its contents are in the public domain. Note: This only applies to images published before March 1, 1989. Patents published after that date are most likely copyrighted, unless in the public domain for another reason, such as {{PD-ineligible}}.

This template will categorize into Category:PD images from US patents.
