Pre-1978, no mark

  • A little more than a month after this ad ran in Playbill, Mike Todd and three other men were killed in the crash of his private plane, "Lucky Liz", in New Mexico. In light of the tragedy, it would have been in the worst of taste for TWA to continue running this ad after Todd's plane crash death.

"A notice for the collective work will not serve as the notice for advertisements inserted on behalf of persons other than the copyright owner of the collective work. These advertisements should each bear a separate notice in the name of the copyright owner of the advertisement."

  • Copyright for Playbill magazine would not affect this non-marked TWA ad. TWA didn't label their ad as under copyright.
