The new year has arrived, and with it, a new crop of literature, music, films and other mediums is entering the public sphere. Jennifer Jenkins, director of the Center for the Study of the Public Domain, told NPR, “It means that the copyright copyright has expired.” “And without paying any fees, any work for any use, reuse, construction for anyone, reuse, construction is free.” In other words, like today, you have the final works of 1925, a reputation filled with an acronym musical or zombie horror-drama.

F. Scott Fitzgeralds The Great Gatsby, Virginia Woolf Mrs. Dloloy, Ernest Hemingway In our teame, Sinclair Lewis’ Aerosmith, By Aldus Huxley It leaves the desert, Agatha Christie’s The secret of the chimney, And New Negro, Edited by Ellen Lake and featuring the works of authors such as Langston Hughes, Jean Toomer, Jora Nelle Hurston and others, now has some tomes in the public domain.

Speaking of movies, the buster belongs to Keaton Go West, Harold Lloyds Freshman, Mary’s widow, And Lovers in quarantine There are also times when Irving Berlin’s “Always”, songs by Gus Kahn and Verter Donaldson, “Yes Sir, That My Baby”, and Gertrude’s “Ma” Rainy’s “Shave ‘I’m Dry” can be added to your film’s soundtrack immediately. .

You can view the study center in the public domain’s list of work listings, or spend the next twelve months or more through the complete list, which includes pamphlets, pamphlets, periodicals, maps, lectures, and sermons. Because Hollywood likes the current IP, and why not that IP since 1925?
