Millions of creative works--books, artwork, photos, songs,
movies, and more--are available copyright-free in the public domain. Frozen for
decades due to lengthened copyright terms, the public domain has finally begun
to grow again as copyrights for older works expire. Since 2019, classics such
as The Great Gatsby, Sherlock Holmes, and early Alfred Hitchcock films
have all entered the U.S. public domain.

The only book that helps you find and identify which creative
works are protected by copyright and which are not, The
Public Domain
covers the rules for:

- writings

- music

- art

- photography

- architecture

- maps

- choreography

- movies

- video

- software

- databases

- collections

The 10th edition is completely updated to include new public
domain resources and the latest legal changes to copyright protection of songs,
books, photos, and other creative works, as well as public domain rules outside
the U.S. It also covers when works created with artificial intelligence (AI)
are in the public domain.
