CORBIS does not control the copying of Pacific & Atlantic images
housed in the Library of Congress. However, any copyright held by Pacific & Atlantic
that is still current would now be owned by CORBIS. In an attempt to
determine if Pacific & Atlantic registered any copyrights and if
those copyrights were renewed, Specialists in the Prints and Photographs
Division of the Library of Congress searched the Copyright Office files.
