Subject: Copyright Question
I've stumbled across a very fine copy of "Shakespeare in the Soviet
Union" (1966, Progress Publishers, Moscow), which includes Kozintsev's
61 page article on Lear. I would love to post some excerpts from this
article on my site, but I'm not at all certain what the copyright issues
are regarding 40 year old foreign translations of articles written in
the now defunct Soviet Union. There's an address for the Publishers in
the back (21 Zubovsky Boulevard, Moscow, USSR), but I have no way of
knowing if they are still there - short of mailing them to see if my
letter is bounced back or not.
Is anyone at all familiar with similar copyright issues? I'm not even
sure where to start looking for legislation governing this issue. And
by any chance does anyone happen to know if Progress Publishers are
still around, and what their current address may be? I can't find much
information on them online, as my Russian is pretty much non-existent.
