Question about US Copyright law

Postby mymar » Tue Feb 06, 2018 7:36 pm

I was under the impression that anything prior to 1927 was considered public domain. Has this changed? Was I misinformed?

I believe the cutoff year in the U. S. is 1923.

That is correct, however as of January 1st, 2019, it won't be any longer, anything before 1924 will be by next year.
