It's Public Domain Day Plus One

#1 Post by silverscreenselect » Sat Jan 02, 2021 7:12 pm

On January 1, all works originally published in the United States in 1925 entered the public domain (many later published works are also in the public domain due to irregularities in their copyrights as well). These include some classics:

The Great Gatsby
Arrowsmith
Mrs. Dalloway
The Painted Veil
The Trial (German version)
Porgy (the book, later known as Porgy and Bess)
An American Tragedy
Manhattan Transfer (John Dos Passos)
In Our Time (Hemingway)
The Secret of Chimneys (Agatha Crhistie)
The Freshman (Harold Lloyd)
Stella Dallas (silent version)
Go West (Buster Keaton)
The Gold Rush (Charlie Chaplin)
Phantom of the Opera (Lon Chaney)
Ben Hur (silent)
Always
Sweet Georgia Brown
Manhattan
Yes Sir, That's My Baby

Although the songs themselves will be in the public domain and may be freely performed now, various later recordings of them are still protected by copyright.

I'm pretty sure Keith Richards has been in the public domain for years....

I got Mrs. Dalloway today -- I picked it up at one of those tiny get a book/leave a book libraries that people put up around neighborhoods. Not sure I'll read it, it's older than I thought.
-- In Iroquois society, leaders are encouraged to remember seven generations in the past and consider seven generations in the future when making decisions that affect the people.
-- America would be a better place if leaders would do more long-term thinking. -- Wilma Mankiller
