Duke University’s 2014 Public Domain Report

“If you live in Canada, January 1st 2014 would be the day when the writings of Robert Frost, W.E.B. Du Bois, C.S. Lewis, Sylvia Plath, and even Aldous Huxley enter the public domain. “O Brave New World, that has such treasures in’t!” In Europe, the works of Fats Waller, Nikola Tesla, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Elinor Glyn, and hundreds of others will emerge into the public domain – where they are freely available for anyone to perform, translate, or republish. All of these public domain works can be freely digitized and archived, so that anyone can find and use them. Canadians can stage their own Chronicles of Narnia, and Europeans can set Tesla’s autobiography to Rachmaninoff’s most intricate passages, all without asking permission or violating the law.”

And what if you live in the US? See Duke University’s annual report, Public Domain Day: January 1, 2014 — The Road NOT Taken, for the answer. — Joe
