Disfarmer estate officially reopened, litigation of ownership rights to come

Why is the year 2029 important in a story about Heber Springs photographer Mike Disfarmer? That’s the year, according to a petition filed to the Cleburne County Circuit Court by Disfarmer’s great-great-nephew Fred Stewart in 2021, that the state can no longer enforce Disfarmer’s heirs’ rights to parts of his estate — 70 years after Disfarmer’s death. But until federal copyright law closes that 70-year window of debate on the matter, Stewart’s petition argues, ownership of elements of Disfarmer’s work continue to remain open to the state’s heirship determination — which, presumably, could rule that Disfarmer’s work belongs to his decendants. Judge Holly Meyer signed a letter on May 12 allowing claims to ownership from descendants to proceed, and has now, the Democrat Gazette reports, signed an order from Stewart’s attorney Grant Fortson reopening the Disfarmer estate to determine “whether undistributed Estate assets exist in the form of negatives and copyrights, asserting any such rights of the Estate as authorized by state and federal law, and distributing any such assets to the heirs of the Decedent.”
