Tons of New Content Being Released into the Public Domain Area January 1, 2019
As of January 1, all works published in the US in 1923 will be in the public domain. We have been waiting 21 years for this date to happen in the copyright world. This will include poems by Robert Frost, and films by Cecil B. Demille. It includes books, musical compositions, paintings, poems, films, and photographs. There has been a 20 year freezing of content and that is ending a New Years. This also means we have tons of new content to make into books, films, and songs.
You can read more about it on the Smithsonian.com site.
