Public Domain

Last Update: June 12, 2021

While researching for a new post I came across this page on the Stanford Libraries page about Copyright and Fair Use.

I am not going to do a blog here on it, I just thought it is something you may want to check out. It is not very long and will take a couple of minutes but worth the time. Very concise and clear. Not 'legalese'.

Yes Robert I came across Public Domain when I first started off. I thought it very curious that one could take over the rights of US publications before 1924 due to the expiration of copyright. There is at least one member I know that does this as his major source of business.
