Many pages have a USA copyright warning at the top of the page - saying that it is unlikely the work is PD. This warning cannot be changed - it seems to be a system message that remains even after someone has searched for the copyright registration and found the work to be likely PD or certainly not. We now have pages with two conflicting warnings. Here are two examples:
Perhaps we can turn off the warning for pages that have the appropriate usa copyright template, or simply make this a transcludable template like any other.

It's the automated message. If you find a work which is PD in the USA we have some templates which will over-rule it. The 2 examples you cite are still valid in terms of wording though. For example, we know that they were both renewed and - absent another factor (like Durand or its successors reprinting the piece without a notice or a defective notice) - they are protected in the USA for the full 95-years.
