PUBLICITY PHOTOS POLICY

Older publicity stills have usually not been copyrighted. Because they have been disseminated to the public, they are generally considered public domain and therefore there is no necessity to clear them with the individuals who produced them.

BOWMAN COPYRIGHT STATEMENT

According to the United States Copyright Office, copyrights belonging to Bowman Gum were not renewed within the required period for filing. Thus, all cards printed by Bowman before 1989 have lapsed into the public domain and are free for use.
