The copyright doesn't expire until 75 years after the author's death,
right? That would make it about... 2036.

Sorry to query the list about illegal activities.

Speaking of copyright: I'm completing a website using the TMF materials
I've been developing for the classroom, and naturally I intended to
liven it up with pics I've gleaned off of other websites devoted to TMF
and film noir in general. Is there going to be an ethical problem with
my including these pics? [he asked, innocently]

Maltese Falcon."
