Copyright for this poster series is thought to sit with Shell as the international organisation who in the 1970s commissioned Allan Mitchell to create these works, as far as is known. Copyright expires 50 years after production in this case - the 2020s.

OMV (NP office) were contacted in March 2023 in relation to this series and have no objection to Puke Ariki supplying digital copies in response to external requests. However they deferred to Shell which continues to operate, with the Australian office giving Puke Ariki no response in March 2023.
