The Duke University Center for the Study of the Public Domain has published their annual list of "What Would Have Entered The Public Domain" for 2015. TechDirt has a good digest of the list as well.
Edit: Here is the list for Jan 1, 2016.
None of that is going to happen.
When considering the government granted monopoly that is Copyright, it is important to keep in mind that the original reasoning and justification used for legislating Copyright in these United States, was to create a modern Library of Alexandria.
Antikythera Mechanism that wouldn't be rediscovered for a thousand years.
The original reasoning in favor of the legal monopoly "Copyright" in these United States was that the restriction would exist for only a limited time. 7 years and 7 more if an additional application was filed (or 14, I forget), AND a copy of the work MUST be sent to the Library Of Congress. At the end of that time, all such works would then be both in the Public Domain, AND a copy would be available at one place where anyone could go and copy it.
The absurdities of Copyright as it is enforced now violate every reason for having it at all. I have heard that Public Domain works can be taken back under Copyright, which is simply evil. Not only is Copyright today effectively perpetual, application is automatic for EVERYTHING and requires no registration with the Library of Congress at all.
Copyright is now a tool for locking away information. The supposed benefits no longer exist.
20180819: The Institute for Justice has reported a case of Copyright abuse which, I hope, gets the bureaucrat's asses whipped!
Valancourt Books, of Richmand, VA, is being threatened by the Copyright office for not using the Copyright office! Remember, above, where I mentioned the requirement that if you want copyright protection you had to send a copy of your book to the Copyright office?
That requirement still exists, except now that everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) is automatically copyrighted by law, the legal requirement has been reversed! Now, they say, you have to send a copy of everything to the Copyright office whether you want their services or not!
This is an excellent example of bureaucrats being well paid to spend their time looking for ways to make other people's lives miserable.
Time for another donation to the Institute for Justice. How about you?
