Unpublished Letters

A professor of psychology desires to edit and publish a collection of unpublished letters in the library archives. Is it fair use?


Answer

The answer to this scenario requires further information. Has the copyright protection expired? Are the letters subject to any agreement the library made with the donor? Can the author or authors of the letters be located? Is the library agreeable to publication? This is the type of problem that requires a detailed legal and factual analysis. One should consult the institution's office of legal affairs for advice.
