With obscure materials like this, if anyone is queasy about some alleged copyright owner -- legit or 
not -- harassing you with lawyers, there is a solution. Upload it to Archive.org. Judging from what 
is hosted by that site and what stays up there, available to all people at no cost, the 
bottom-feeder types don't want to tangle with the Prelingers. Now, on the other hand, there seem to 
be some legitimate copyright issues with some of the material at archive.org, but I imagine that if 
someone produced a legitimate right of copy (or whatever the term is), the folks running archive.org 
would remove the offending material.

In my opinion, the material you all are discussing is non-controversial. It likely has little to no 
commercial market so it's unlikely that anyone except someone who is very rich and very bored would 
bring in lawyers to prevent it from being hosted by a large global website like archive.org.

I've often wondered about scanned articles from old audio magazines. Come on, someone really is 
going to chase after the Prelingers to prevent everyone from seeing a 1950's profile of a McIntosh 
amplifier?

In the real world, copyright owners get militant and call in the attack dog lawyers over stuff that 
has enough commercial value to validate the expense and effort of bringing down the wrath. The music 
mega-glomerates learned the folly of suing small-time customers over low-value songs, and everyone 
else took note. If you uploaded the current hit movie to YouTube, the wrath hammer would come down 
quickly. If you uploaded some old Soundie, it's likely it would stay up there forever (unless it 
involved Mickey Mouse). I would say that old record-collector newsletters and magazines published by 
long-dead folks have so little commercial value that no one would be in a position to call out the 
dogs if it appeared online.
