Copyright: John Mark Ockerbloom on U of Penn project identifying works out of copyright (federally funded research)

  • Almost all works before 1923 are free of copyright in the U.S.; starting in January 2019, more materials will be copyright-free (all of 1923 I think)
  • their project identifies many magazine/journal works up to 1960s whose copyrights were not renewed, and creates data records so they can be identified and classified
