Product Description

Even though for years teachers have told us 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 copyright -- and what's not. The book provides specific information about:

Writings;
Music;
Art;
Photography;
Architecture;
Maps;
Choreography;
Movies and video;
Software;
Databases;
Collections.

This edition is completely updated and revised, and includes information about the latest court decisions and the emergence of the "copyright commons." The book also provides hundreds of resources to help you find public-domain works.
