Because VCX and Rochelle Weisberg failed to file for copyright in time, the film has fallen into what is termed Public Domain. This means anyone can copy the film, or present it for public showing without consent of the producers or be forced to pay any type of royalty. The film has remained in Public domain since 1987.
