In this episode Metadata Services Librarian Rachel Evans interviews Research & Copyright Services Law Librarian Stephen Wolfson. They discuss the growth of the public domain on January 1, 2019 including the 1998 law that added 20 years to copyrights which would have expired in 1999 and the copyright durations for past and present U.S. written, visual, and musical works. Wolfson also shares a few of his favorite works from 1923, resources for locating and determining copyright expiration, and the library digitization efforts happening with the more than 50,000 public domain materials. The two also talk about a couple of events UGA Law Library is doing this month in celebration of the growth of the public domain.
