Copyright[edit]

Paul Herman has undertaken extensive research into the copyright status of works by Robert E. Howard. Herman released a document for a Howard website called REHeapa entitled: 'THE COPYRIGHT AND OWNERSHIP STATUS OF THE WORKS AND WORDS OF ROBERT E. HOWARD' in December of 2002. This document contains a comprehensive list of Howard works in the public domain. Some of his conjectures as to what is or is not public domain have been called into question by claimants to the rights to the work and are currently being researched. Anyone using Herman's original list are advised to consult the updated versions of the document.
