Copyright Mark ©
In 1947 the U.S. Congress expanded copyright laws to include illustrations of merchandise and designs for art works. In 1955 a Federal judge ruled that costume jewelry designs were “works of art”, and therefore should be accorded the protection of the US copyright laws (based on lawsuit that Trifari won against Charel in 1955). Most costume jewelry having the copyright mark was made after 1955. However, there were exceptions — some companies, such as Coro, may have been using this mark as early as 1947; and some jewelry marked Korda (made in the late 1930’s and early 1940’s just prior to WWII). The copyright mark found on Korda items protect the movies which inspired the designs–in other words, the copyright protects the movie and not the jewelry designs.
