Recruiting Posters


Recommended Posts

I recently came across a very interesting collection of British Army recruiting posters in, of all places, the Library of Congress in Washington, DC.

I am wondering if Crown Copyright extends to these.

To find these posters, go to this URL

Crown copyright expires (I believe) after 50 years.

However the website may own the copyright on the actual scans.

Their bit about it is here http://lcweb2.loc.gov/pp/pphelp.html#permission

But it isn't that helpful.

I thought Crown Copyright in fact lasted longer than others? I seem to remember reading this somewhere - and it also depends when the images were p[roduced. As mentioned many times on this forum, copyright is a thorny and complex topic.........
