Public Domain Day Logo

Public Domain Day 2019

January 1, 2019, marked an important day for copyrighted works. For the first time in more than 20 years, published works from 1923 will enter the public domain. This means that anyone can use the works for free and without any copyright restrictions. The last time this occurred was in 1998 before the United States’ Congress passed the Copyright Term Extension Act. This act is also often referred to as the Sonny Bono Act (named in memory of the late Congressman, Sonny Bono) or the Mickey Mouse Protection Act due to the Walt Disney Company’s support of such copyright extensions.
