Please Note that although we produce our DVDs to the Highest Quality they are made using PUBLIC DOMAIN material, and sadly due to the age of some of these films you may notice some small quality imperfections that you would not see in a modern production, this can include titles which have been transferred from VHS tape and 35mm reels.
When films become in the Public Domain it is because the films copyright registration was not renewed after its initial 28 years of copyright protection. Or, the film was never registered at all. The price you pay covers our time and materials, it is not a payment for the film itself as the film is free in the Public Domain.
The content of our DVDs is underlying material in the 'public domain', and as such is in accordance with the Berne Convention policies regarding such material.
The work has entered 'public domain’ because either the copyright was never applied for or has expired. Anything that is not protected under the copyright law, this includes all works published between 1928 and under certain conditions works published up to 1978 can be re-published.
A work can be anything a book, a play, a piece of music, photographs, movies, instruction manuals, a poster etc.
Re-published and re-packaging 'public domain' information or creative works is not illegal, because the work has fallen into 'public domain' there are no royalties to pay.
