The legal definition of "published" doesn't seem to entail any need for permission of the original author - just the work being released unrestricted for public consumption - which would therefore include being published in a newspaper. If there is legal evidence disputing this, by all means let me know. Sherurcij (talk) (λεμα σαβαχθανει) 05:28, 28 November 2006 (UTC)

While unpublished works were not covered by the Copyright Act of 1906, the member states of the United States protected them with their own copyright laws. The newspaper possibly violated state laws by publishing it. --Benn Newman (AMDG) 03:40, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
Is this not true of all things not covered by the Copyright Act of 1906? Not just unpublished works?--BirgitteSB 04:15, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
I think so. Sound recordings were covered by state law. --Benn Newman (AMDG) 04:26, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
Then this probably should be a wider disscussion as opposed to this one template. --BirgitteSB 04:30, 1 December 2006 (UTC)


@Xover: something is busted with the template. Thanks. — billinghurstbillinghurst sDrewth 03:33, 28 August 2022 (UTC)

@Billinghurst: I fixed one issue with works where the author died more than 100 years ago (essentially when it calls PD-US). But not knowing what symptoms you saw and on which page(s) you saw them I can't verify that that specific issue is fixed. Could you check (you may need to purge etc. as per usual), and if it's still there give me a page + details?
