I did get a reply on this from Prelinger and my understanding is that only the videos that are detailed as being in the Public Domain are in the Public Domain - in the Prelinger Archives.

Most of the videos in the Prelinger Archives have this detail.

The Internet Archive is a different kettle of fish...there are many videos that are clearly not in the public domain. Again, if they are in the Public Domain it says in the detail.

If it doesn't say PD, you have to investigate further to ascertain which license the video is under. That is my understanding.

Hope that helps!
