A History of Intellectual Property in 50 Objects
Chapter 34: Zapruder Film
THE ZAPRUDER FILM is not only the most important home movie ever made, but also the most thoroughly analyzed 26 seconds of film in existence. Shortly after noon on Friday, 22 November 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. Atleast 32 people filmed or photographed some aspect of the event, but Abraham Zapruder captured the assassination itself more clearly and completely than anyone eise. His film was a key item of evidence in the government's investigation of the assassination, and the subject of lasting controversy, at least in part because copyright made it largely unavailable to the public until 1998.
