All that's gonna have to be is that we'll have to wait until the copyright becomes public domain... I think it's only a few more years 'til then.
Er... not so much.
After some searching, it seems that the copyright was registered in 1950 (or earlier, it was registered lesson by lesson with the later ones in '50). The most optimistic scenario is that this copyright is considered a "work-for-hire" scenario and was published the same year it was registered, which puts the copyright expiration at 2045.
A less optimistic scenario is researching the date of death for the longest living author and tacking on 70 years.
I've seen these courses! My grandma had these when she was younger, and I did them when I was verrrrryy small. If you can find them, use them, because they're incredible. I hope she still has them so I can borrow..
Great to know that you keep a link to the FA School courses. I've got the cartoon course, a really fine piece of teaching.
Could you give me the link that will make me able to download the courses? Of course it has to be kept apart and never published on the web.
