Public Domain News

On Jan. 1, 2019, new works entered the U.S. public domain for the first time in more than 20 years. The Center for the Study of the Public Domain at Duke Law School notes, “Works from 1923 will be free for all to use and build upon, without permission or fee. They include dramatic films such as The Ten Commandments, and comedies featuring Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd. There are literary works by Robert Frost, Aldous Huxley, and Edith Wharton, the ‘Charleston’ song, and more.”  

Other coverage of the public domain works includes articles from The Atlantic and Smithsonian, as well as blog posts from Library Babel Fish and The Scholarly Kitchen.
