Copyright and the Herreshoff Catalogue Raisonné

The Herreshoff Catalogue Raisonné is Copyright © 2017 Claas van der Linde. It is not to be reproduced, adapted, transmitted, or distributed, as a whole or in part, without prior written permission by Claas van der Linde. Including the Herreshoff Catalogue Raisonné or any part of it on any website or elsewhere is expressly prohibited.

The Herreshoff Catalogue Raisonné is a non-commercial effort which strives to be scholarly and educative. It's purpose is to educate about the legacy of the Herreshoffs and the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company. In doing so, I hope to also improve the chances of surviving Herreshoff vessels to be appreciated and cared for and, thus, to survive further into the future.

The copyright for reprinted text or images clearly remains with the original author or publisher unless specifically noted to the contrary or in cases where text or images have already passed into the public domain (see the table below for when material passes into the public domain). Any accompanying comments which have been set in square brackets are by Claas van der Linde and are copyrighted by him, even if they are included in text that is copyrighted by another party.

The Herreshoff Catalogue Raisonné is made available solely for your individual research, education, and criticism. Text in the Herreshoff Catalogue Raisonné often consists of small excerpts from larger documents, many of which are already in the public domain. These snippets have been collected from many different sources and assembled in such a way as to document the nature and history of specific vessels built by the Herreshoff Manufacturing Company. As such, I believe, they are subject to the fair use doctrin of copyright law, allowing me to reproduce even copyrighted material in this form. I have made every effort to properly cite the sources of text and images. Likewise, I have made every effort to identify their copyright holders (if any) and, in the case of valid restrictions, have obtained permission (which I gratefully acknowledge on a case-by-case basis) or have only cited their sources and not included the actual content.

Some Assumptions I have About What is Protected by Copyright:

Includes material from new Term Extension Act, PL 105-298
Published before 1923 Now in public domain None
Published between 1923 - 1963 When published with notice3 28 years + could be renewed for 47 years, now extended by 20 years for a total renewal of 67 years. If not so renewed, now in public domain
Published between 1964 - 1977 When published with notice 28 years for first term; now automatic extension of 67 years for second term
Created before January 1, 1978 but not published January 1, 1978, the effective date of the 1976 Act which eliminated common law copyright Life + 70 years or December 31, 2002, whichever is greater
Created beforeJanuary 1, 1978 but published between then and December 31, 2002 January 1, 1978, the effective date of the 1976 Act which eliminated common law copyright Life + 70 years or December 31, 2047 whichever is greater
Created January 1, 1978 or after When work is fixed in tangible medium of expression Life + 70 years1(or if work of corporate authorship, the shorter of 95 years from publication, or 120 years from creation2

1 Term of joint works is measured by life of the longest-lived author.
2 Works for hire, anonymous and pseudonymous works also have this term. 17 U.S.C. § 302(c).
3 Under the 1909 Act, works published without notice went into the public domain upon publication. Works published without notice between January 1, 1978 and March 1, 1989, effective date of the Berne Convention Implementation Act, retained copyright only if, e.g., registration was made within five years. 17 U.S.C. § 405.
