Need content? It's free for the taking!
Even though you've always been told otherwise, writers and artists can copy other people's work and get away with it. How? By dipping into the public domain, where everything is free for the taking.
"The Public Domain" is the only book that helps you find and identify what creative works are protected by copyrightA -- and what's not. The book provides specific information about:
writings
music
art
photography
architecture
maps
choreography
movies and video
software
databases
collections
The 4th edition is crisper, fresher and completely updated with new case law, and includes information on the emergence of the "copyright commons." The book also provides hundreds of resources to help you find public-domain works.
