  • “The Outbursts of Everett True” is likely in the public domain. This comic strip was created by A.D. Condo and J.W. Raper, and it first appeared in 1905. Works published in the United States before 1924 are generally in the public domain.

    Here are some key points to confirm its public domain status:

    1. Publication Date: Since “The Outbursts of Everett True” was first published in 1905, it falls well before the 1924 cutoff.

    2. Copyright Term: For works published before 1924, the original copyright term would have been 28 years, renewable for another 28 years, totaling a possible 56 years. Even if renewed, this would have expired by 1961.

    3. Public Domain Confirmation: Typically, works published over 95 years ago are in the public domain unless there are specific reasons why their copyright might have been extended beyond the normal terms, which is uncommon for early 20th-century works.

    Therefore, “The Outbursts of Everett True” should be in the public domain based on its original publication date.
