GB Patent: 191,025,525

A Combined Machine for Boring, Surfacing, Milling, Drilling and Tapping Metals Patentee: James H. Melloy - Manchester, Lancaster County England Granted:1911-03-02

Note: Early English patents were not originally numbered but they were later assigned consecutive numbers that run from GB-#1 of 1617 to #14359 of September 1852. From Oct 1852 until 1916, patents were numbered by the year and started at patent #1 at the start of each year in January. The patent number used in DATAMP represents the year of issue and the patent number. This patent is #25,525 issued in the year 1910. H. B. Barlow & Gillett, Chartered Patent Agents Abstract: In a combination machine tool, a hollow spindle c is driven at a comparatively low speed for boring, surfacing, or milling, and an inner spindle q is driven by change 'and differential gearing for transmitting the surfacing feedmotion, and is driven also at a high speed when serving as a drilling or tapping spindle, separate gearing being employed for the feed in this latter case. A driving-shaft j with a double toothed slidable wheel i may transmit motion by gearing h. f, e to the main hollow spindle c, and, by a clutch k, change gear l, m, and gearing o, p, the inner spindle q is rotated to transmit the feed through gearing r, s\ s<2> to a spur-wheel fixed on the feed screw. For drilling or tapping, the spindle q is driven through gearing i, v, x, p, the wheel o being thrown out of gear and the feed being transmitted through gearing y, l, m, z, 2, 3, 4.

Copyright Office: New Crowdsourcing Campaign Focuses on Early Copyright Records

New Crowdsourcing Campaign Focuses on Early Copyright Records NewsNet 924
October 7, 2021

By the People, the Library of Congress' crowdsourcing program, and the Rare Book and Special Collections Division, in consultation with the U.S. Copyright Office, have launched a new crowdsourcing transcription campaign, “American Creativity: Early Copyright Title Pages.” We invite the public to help make the Library's collections more accessible by transcribing over 95,000 title pages from the earliest printed works in the United States. From 1790 through 1870, authors registered copyright claims by completing a form at the local federal district court, paying a fee, and depositing of a printed title page with the court clerk. In 1870, with the passage of the second general revision to the Copyright Act, copyright registration was centralized in the Library of Congress, and the earlier records were ordered to be transferred to the Library. In 2020, the Library began digitizing the collection.

You might recognize some of the titles in this campaign, but many others have been lost to obscurity or were never actually published. These pages cover every subject imaginable from dramatic plays to religious texts to musical scores, novels, and scientific works. Making these title records more accessible will help historians and book enthusiasts everywhere better understand the printing history of America. 

Get started transcribing and reviewing the new campaign. To learn more about digital volunteering or transcribing Library collections, explore By the People's Welcome Guide. Have questions about the campaign or how to get started? Contact By the People community managers at crowd@loc.gov

Copyright Office Proposes Rules for Initiating Copyright Claims Board Proceedings

 

Copyright Office Proposes Rules for Initiating Copyright Claims Board ProceedingsNewsNet 922
September 29, 2021

The U.S. Copyright Office has issued a proposed rule to establish procedures governing the initial stages of proceedings before the Copyright Claims Board (CCB). The proposed rule also establishes requirements regarding the directory for designated service agents. Initial public comments are due on October 29, 2021. Reply comments are due on November 15, 2021.

The Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) Act of 2020 directs the Register of Copyrights to establish regulations for all stages of a proceeding before the CCB. The proposed rule includes procedures for the initial stages of the proceeding, including the following:

  • Filing an initial claim,
  • Compliance review by a copyright claims attorney,
  • Service and waiver of service,
  • CCB issuance of a second notice,
  • Opting out, and
  • Filing a response and any counterclaims.

The Copyright Office welcomes comments on the proposed procedures, which were developed in light of the statutory mandate to create an efficient and user-friendly forum for small copyright claims.
