Public Domain Day 2008

Wallace McLean details for us one of the most important days of each year, Public Domain Day for 2008!

Lets take a moment to think about all those types of creative works where the "author" is not as clear as it is with a book. This includes creativity like recordings, performances, broadcasts, motion pictures or still photography, all which should not have their cultural recycling dates tied to the death of the most often unknown and unknowable author(s), but some fixed date such as the date of recording/taking or the date of public publishing/communication/etc.

Lets work hard to restore sanity to the copyright term for photography which was only recently broken to become life+50 in Canada.
