Fulfilled requests[edit]

Copyrighted and restricted by copyright holder[edit]

Works in the public domain in source countries but copyrighted in the USA[edit]

American non-acceptance of the rule of the shorter term may cause certain works to be considered copyrighted in the USA even if they are in the public domain in their source countries. If a work has been legally published in the USA and another jurisdiction, it is anyway subject to the USA copyright term even if the USA had accepted the rule of the shorter term.

Administrators: Whenever deleting works in the public domain in source countries but copyrighted in the USA, please list them below so they can be more easily submitted again once the USA accepts the rule of the shorter term.
