limited publication
Copyrighted material loses its protected status if it is published without notice of copyright; an exception to such doctrine exists for material whose publication can be characterized as "limited," but to qualify as a "limited publication," the publication must communicate the contents of a manuscript to a definitely selected group and for a limited purpose without the right of diffusion, reproduction, distribution or sale. Rexnord, Inc. v. Modern Handling Systems, Inc., D.C.Del., 379 F.Supp. 1190, 1197.
Circulation must be restricted both as to persons and purpose or it cannot be called a private or limited publication. Conner v. Mark I, Inc., D.C.I11., 509 F.Supp. 1179, 1180
