  You replied to my email on the NY State History email list about
copywrite, and I had one more question.
  I had a new idea of taking about 10-12 newspapers from 1905, and taking
interesting articles from each newspaper and making a "Scrapbook" type of
book out of it.   Obvously, with the microfilm being copywrited, I wondered
how that would reply to the actual words?  For example.  Could I retype the
artcles to bypass the copywrite  situation with the microfilm.

Obviously the newspapers are not copywrited, because anything before 1924
has lost its copywrite.

I guess I am hoping that the microfilm copywrite is JUST under the microfilm
and not the material.

Thank you for all your help with this my my previous questions.
