Publication and other forms of distribution: Most of the works in the Library of Congress Paul Rudolph Archive have no known copyright restrictions. Paul Rudolph gave the Library his collection of the works he created (e.g., sketches, drawings, writings and photographs) following his death. The June 6, 2001 Stipulation of Settlement for Mr. Rudolph’s estate states "The intellectual property rights of all such items transferred to the Library of Congress shall be dedicated to the public." In 2023, the Paul Rudolph Foundation and the Paul Rudolph Institute for Modern Architecture acknowledged and agreed that there are no copyright restrictions on Paul Rudolph works in the Library’s Paul Rudolph Collection.
Please note, some of the photographs and documents in the Rudolph archive may have been created by third parties and not Mr. Rudolph or his employees and may be under copyright restriction. Additionally, some works by Paul Rudolph were transferred to the Library from other sources, and these too may be subject to copyright. For example, the items described in PR 13 CN 2011:138 [view description] and PR 13 CN 2011:214 [view description] fall into this category. Other entities may hold the rights to these items.
