copyright questions - newspaper articles &correspondence

copyright questions - newspaper articles &correspondence

Arnaud asked:

“I'd like to give access on my website to transcripts 
of my newspaper articles and original correspondence 
related to meteorites (and minerals & fossils...):

http://www.thetricottetcollection.com/library_met_newspapers.html
http://www.thetricottetcollection.com/library_met_manuscripts.html

However I haven't done it until now because I don't 
know the laws regarding copyrights.”

Wikipedia, for obvious reasons, has an extensive and
useful discussion of copyright laws. they include,

“Copyright” at:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright#Copyright_by_country

“List of countries' copyright length”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries%27_copyright_length

“Fair use”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use

“Public Domain”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Public_domain

Despite the known cavets and limitations about Wikipedia, 
I have found these pages useful as a starting point in 
finding information about the various aspects of copyright.

Yours,

Paul H.
