jan 26, 1958 - Due to an old copyright law (The 1909 Act),
the copyright of "American Gothic"
had to be renewed at this time since
The 1909 Act required anything that was
copyrighted to have a renewed copyright
protection every 28 years. However,
"American Gothic" did not get a renewed
copyright, so at this time, the painting goes
into the public domain.
