Public Domain Day 2019

January 09, 2019

Public Domain Day 2019
https://law.duke.edu/cspd/publicdomainday/2019/


For the first time in over 20 years, on January 1, 2019, published works will enter the US public domain.1 Works from 1923 will be free for all to use and build upon, without permission or fee. Google Books will offer the full text of books from that year, instead of showing only snippet views or authorized previews. The Internet Archive will add books, movies, music, and more to its online library. HathiTrust has made over 50,000 titles from 1923 available in its digital library. Community theaters are planning screenings of the films. Students will be free to adapt and publicly perform the music. Because these works are in the public domain, anyone can make them available, where you can rediscover and enjoy them. (Empirical studies have shown that public domain books are less expensive, available in more editions and formats, and more likely to be in print—see here, here, and here.) In addition, the expiration of copyright means that you’re free to use these materials, for education, for research, or for creative endeavors—whether it’s translating the books, making your own versions of the films, or building new music based on old classics.

Genius Web Annotator

Genius Web Annotator
https://genius.com/web-annotator

Genius lets you add line-by-line annotations to any page on the Internet. Only a handful of people know that the web browser’s big missing feature—the feature that was supposed to be in from the start but didn’t make it—is the ability to annotate any page on the Internet. Since we founded Rap Genius in 2009, we’ve built an amazing community for breaking down the meaning of anything you’re reading line-by-line — whether it’s Yeezus or Shakespeare — but it’s all been confined to our site. Now, with the Genius Web Annotator, it’s possible to add context, commentary, and images directly on top of any web page using only your browser. News Genius is revolutionizing the way people interact with the news. Rather than seeing reporters and news organizations as the gatekeepers to information, we see journalism as an ongoing and evolving discussion between many parties. We’re a community of journalists, news junkies, designers, engineers, students, you name it, annotating new stories every day, along with original texts (like transcripts and speeches).
