CORBIS does not control the copying of NEA images housed in the Library of Congress. However, any copyright held by NEA that is still current would now be owned by CORBIS. In an attempt to determine if there are current copyrights, specialists in the Prints & Photographs Divison of the Library of Congress conducted a search of the Copyright Office files. It was discovered that copyrights were placed and renewed on the photographs of the Dionne Quintuplets taken by the NEA. Therefore, those photographs are still under copyright. Privacy and publicity rights may also apply.

Credit Line: Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, [reproduction number, e.g., LC-USZ62-123456]
