“Public domain” refers to materials that are not protected by copyright and can, therefore, be used freely. Material in this category includes:
- Works with expired copyright (generally speaking, items published before 1923 are in the public domain);
- Works not copyrightable or protected by copyright;
- Works produced by a federal government employee in the course of his or her job;
- Works clearly denoted to be in the public domain.
