ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Pratt & Whitney - A bit waspy.
Hrmmm… time to rethink the design of my Vespa club logo?
For being from 1952, the resemblance of the body with the Dyson canister vacuum cleaner is uncanny….
Yes, my understanding from the copyright mavens here at work is that the rule of thumb is 1922 or older are likely public domain.
Images from 1923 or newer could be under copyright.
Yo Way Yo Yo Way Yo Hom Var Ray Yo Way Rah Jerum Br…
Looks like a jet-powered dragonfly to me.
IT came out in 1952 and copyrights only last 50 years is why.
What!?! No Pratt & Whitney Twin Wasp?
Then how is the original Mickey Mouse still under copyright but this isn’t?
They passed a new law wrt that, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_Term_Extension_Act
me slow also
Can someone explain how the ad is public domain and this image is not rights-encumbered? I’m genuinely curious.
Sorry for being thick…where is the indication that this ad is public domain?
Am I the only one who’s recently read “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”? Deckard! DECKARD! Get out here! Your wasp is back!
