Post: Original 1915 contour bottle drawing
Posted by Jeff on 3/23/08
Do I need to worry about copyright infringement if I was to
sell copies of my grandfather's sketch of the contour
Coca-Cola bottle. My grandfather designed the contour
coca-cola bottle in 1915. The sketch which he drew, before
producing the first prototypes, is in my possession and to
this day has never been seen by the public. I would like to
produce copies of the sketch and sell them, but I'm
concerned that it might be infringing on the Coca-Cola
Company's copyrights. I'm wondering if this drawing can be
considered public domain, but I'm not sure since it seems to
fall under an unusual set of circumstances.
