The Court's prior opinion indicated that plaintiff's exact photographic copies of public domain works of art would not be copyrightable under United States law because they are not original. In view of the Court's conclusion here that U.S. law governs on this issue, it is appropriate to give a somewhat fuller statement of the Court's reasoning.
someone scans a bunch of old publications well within the public domain and place them in a .pdf
( writings or papers written by those who at the time were in military service for example )
That could have referred to a bunch of old postcards that are scanned and placed into a PDF compendium..
