AsHarold Lloyd Wall Clock

This is sometimes due to nothing… In this case three short months.

Everyone does not necessarily on the tips of the fingers the cinematographic work of Harold Lloyd, but everyone is this famous scene where you see hanging from the hands of a public clock of the façade of a building in Los Angeles.

Here is an excerpt, animated gif, on the right. We will not show you more[1] because the film he comes from, Safety Last!, is still protected by copyright, even if out there a long time, namely 1923.

But 1923 is a special date for the public domain in the United States. Indeed, justice decided in 1988 that any work published before 1923 is now in the public domain[2] (he also decided all lengthen and complicate everything for published works after, but there isn’t the point).

Unlike the France that does not have, it is therefore here a date deadline admittedly very (too?) remote, but who has at least the merit of the convenience of those who are asking the question of whether or not such work is in the public domain.
Published for the first time before 1923 in the United States? It’s good!

The problem of date deadlines, it’s that they create the margin of funny of extreme cases. And Harold Lloyd film is a very iconic.

Turned the end of 1922, Safety Last! was published on 1 April 1923. It would be released a few months earlier he would thus already have entered the public domain and no would be protected not until… 2019!(95 years after the publication of the work).

And the detail is important because the heirs, grouped in the Harold Lloyd Entertainment Company, ensure the grain and not a little. They have been able to pass the idea that anything related directly or indirectly to the representation of ‘a man hanging from a clock’ refers to the famous scene and so is theirs!

The professional manufacturer of quality wood wall clocks taught most recently at its expense by attack for having marketed the clock on the right, without permission (with cash) to the Harold Lloyd Entertainment.

Great directors Robert Zemeckis and Martin Scorsesewere more cautious. Their respective films, back to the future (1985) and Hugo Cabret (2011) that contains many scenes of human suspension to a clock (see images above and below) [3], they are well past upstream by the cash register of the Harold Lloyd Entertainment.

All legal consequences which would not have occurred if Harold Lloyd had the good idea of hurrying to release his film a whole little earlier. In the case that concerns us here, he has to take his pain with patience and wait nicely until 2019, at least if it shall not increase again by then.

Hanging from the hands of the clock of the legislature, the public domain is decidedly fragile.
