According to w:User:Pietro Shakarian:

It fell into the public domain because it was not renewed after its 25-year copyright term. Films and other copyrighted materials in the United States are supposed to be renewed 25 years after their release. I know this because I've researched in Walter E. Hurst's "Film Superlist" - a guide to every single American film copyrighted and renewed. Pretty much all the films released in 1930 that I looked up were renewed in 1955. If a film or material is failed to be renewed, then it falls into the public domain. Such was the case with "Oceantics".
This image is in the public domain in the United States. In most cases, this means that its first publication was in the United States prior to January 1, 1923 or that its copyright expired in the United States.
This image might not be in the public domain outside of the United States (this especially applies in Canada, China (not Macao or Taiwan), Germany or Switzerland).
