English: This is a publicity still taken and publicly distributed to promote the subject or a work relating to the subject.

  • As stated by film production expert Eve Light Honathaner in The Complete Film Production Handbook (Focal Press, 2001, p. 211.):
    “Publicity photos (star headshots) have traditionally not been copyrighted. Since they are disseminated to the public, they are generally considered public domain, and therefore clearance by the studio that produced them is not necessary.”
  • Nancy Wolff, in The Professional Photographer’s Legal Handbook (Allworth Communications, 2007, p. 55.), notes:
    “There is a vast body of photographs, including but not limited to publicity stills, that have no notice as to who may have created them.”
  • Film industry author Gerald Mast, in Film Study and the Copyright Law (1989, p. 87), writes:
    “According to the old copyright act, such production stills were not automatically copyrighted as part of the film and required separate copyrights as photographic stills. The new copyright act similarly excludes the production still from automatic copyright but gives the film’s copyright owner a five-year period in which to copyright the stills. Most studios have never bothered to copyright these stills because they were happy to see them pass into the public domain, to be used by as many people in as many publications as possible.”
  • Kristin Thompson, committee chairperson of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies writes in the conclusion of a 1993 conference of cinema scholars and editors[1], that:
    “[The conference] expressed the opinion that it is not necessary for authors to request permission to reproduce frame enlargements… [and] some trade presses that publish educational and scholarly film books also take the position that permission is not necessary for reproducing frame enlargements and publicity photographs.”

Oct. 30, 2019, 1:09p, Subject line tt’s abt her 1997 autobiog and its title: Dear Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, I would like to send a fan letter to Ms. Farrow asking if she’d care for me to index her autobiography for its historic significance. Then I learned that her daughter is working on YA novels about “magic” vs. real life and I have background information she could use if you could forward this message or send me a regular address I could use for mailing a note for re-mailing to Ms. Farrow. Any assistance would be appreciated. Sincerely, Kathy Foshay, (202) 459-8618 and UniverseRescueKathyFoshayWordPressCom.wordpress.com but nothing’s secure.

About kathyfoshay

I'm all alone with the real end of the world and always looking for assistance and no one's ever contacted me from the hundreds of letters I'd sent while at the big homeless shelter, 2nd and D Streets, NW, as though anyone that tries to contact me gets disappeared, my life used as a LURE-gimmick that goes to how that Armageddon prophecy in that book of Revelation has been being snuck-through, and this is sort of the bottom of the barrel of ideas for trying to find assistance, thinking I could get all my various writings on this in one place that letter-recipients could then look up if they're interested. That means I'd have to see if I can send my emails to here, how to do that. Wordpress said there is a way but it entails that spam would also get the email address. My time for now it up I guess. Working in this sitting position isn't healthy for me but I've always got to be doing something toward trying to get hold of someone to help me. It's like I'm a microcosm of the Earth or the human race and if someone could help me out of this torture then that'd be a start on trying to get the whole Earth out of this. 5/1/17, still all this, etc., same situation. (7/14/18 now....) Now it's 2019.
