Public Domain Review - Out-of-copyright works
The Public Domain Review is a not-for-profit project dedicated to showcasing the most interesting and unusual out-of-copyright works available online.
All works eventually falling out of copyright (from classic works of art, music and literature, to abandoned drafts, tentative plans, and overlooked fragments)are in the public domain, a vast commons of material that everyone is free to enjoy, share and build upon without restriction.
The Public Domain Review aims to help its readers to explore this rich terrain.
On the website it is possible to find:
- articles from leading scholars, writers, archivists, and artists provide fresh reflections and new angles on old material;
- the possibility to subscribe to the newsletter;
- browse public domain material organised in collections (films, audio, images and texts),
- a guide to finding interesting public domain works.
