Happy Public Domain Day 2008!


Public Domain PowerOn 1st January 2008 much of the world celebrated Public Domain Day: the day when a whole year’s worth of copyrights (thousands, indeed millions, of creative works from the planet’s collective cultural past) enter the public domain for anyone to copy or reuse as they like.
Let’s celebrate the gains that the public domain has made today throughout the world. It’s our past, our cultural heritage, our public domain. Promote it, celebrate it, and use it, or we will lose it.
