The Fantastic Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs : About Copyrights

About Copyrights

I mentioned in the previous post how in 1963, the copyrights to ERB's works had been allowed to lapse. That mistake was corrected, and ERB's works copyrighted in and after 1923 are still protected.  His books from before 1923 are considered public domain in the USA. This site will release only readings from Ed's public domain works.

Our show's theme music, from The Planets: Mars, the Bringer of War, by Gustav Holst,  is also in the public domain. My performances (readings) of ERB's books, and my rendition of Mars, the Bringer of War are fully copyrighted by myself, David Stifel, 2011.

Which brings me to the main delight of this post, the unveiling of the first book's artwork for the podcast, courtesy of my brother.  It is copyright by Ernest Stifel, 2011.   A tip of the Hatlo hat to bro, Ern! (Anybody else remember that reference?)
