Happy New Year!

It’s Christmas all over again in January! An avalanche of music, novels, films, and works of art first published in the U.S. in 1923 will enter the public domain this year. Public domain means anyone can sell those works without incurring any costs, but it also means that anyone can give them away for free. For those works of art falling into public domain this year, that means anyone can re-publish or chop them up and repurpose them in other projects. We can remix and repurpose old art into new works of art, which will then enter the public domain of future generations.
