Hi! Anyone know of a good searchable database of movie copyright renewals?

I'm trying to figure out if a handful of film serials are safe for me to distribute.

Thanks!

@ajroach42 There's one for books, which posts to Mastodon. Though of course, that means I cannot find it....

(Give me a minute...)

@ajroach42 NYPL are likely to be the best specific source for you to contact regarding whether or not any such database exists, and/or if there's any work toward creating one.

Sean Raymond specifically seems to be the lead person, see:

I don't have contact information for him, though you're welcome to dig for that.
