Geeking out on copyright: Many 1923 works are now free

January 1, 2019 is a good day for fans of the public domain. Why? "For the first time in over 20 years, published works (music, art, literature) will enter the U.S. public domain" (Center for the Study of the Public Domain, 2018). What does that mean? Well, there will be a lot more versions of 1923 "classics", including works by Agatha Christie, Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan), e.e. cummings, Robert Frost, and many more. 

Want to learn more? Take your pick of the articles online...there are a lot more people excited about this than you think. 

One of the worst films of 1923?
