The Public Domain Review

pdr-logo

“All works eventually fall out of copyright – from classic works of art to absentminded doodles – and in doing so they enter the public domain, a vast commons of material that everyone is free to enjoy, share and build upon without restriction.”  

The Public Domain Review was created in 2011 by the Open Knowledge Foundation.  It aims “to help our readers explore this rich terrain – like a small exhibition gallery at the entrance to an immense network of archives and storage rooms that lie beyond.”

The collections are the heart of the site.  You will find images, texts, and audiovisual materials from around the world.
