Faulkner, Hesse Lead Public Domain Day 2013

PDF  | Print |  E-mail
Wednesday January 02, 2013
Wallace McLean has posted his annual celebration of public domain day, listing dozens of authors whose work entered into the public domain in Canada on New Year's Day. Notable names this year include Nobel Prize winners William Faulkner and Herman Hesse as well as  poet e.e. cummings. The list is particularly notable this year as Canada is participating in the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations, which include U.S. proposals to extend the term of copyright in Canada to life of the author plus 70 years (from the current life plus 50).  If adopted, the change would mean that no new works would enter the Canadian public domain for two decades.

Public Domain
I wanted to emphasize in particular what I see as a crucial point, that the standards are "math war neutral". It seems to me the only people that would try to use the CCSSM to deliberately reignite old debates are likely self-serving poilcy wonks looking to to draw extra attention to themselves. It would be a shame to see the rising and productive tide of national education discourse derailed by such a vocal few.

Let's define the public domain, once and for all.
Interesting to see the Public Domain Definition varies from Country to Country. The standard US rules being anything prior to 1923 and UK rules being 70 years after the author's death. Isn't it about time we had a standard definition of public domain?
