As a kid, and to this day, I’ve been in love with music and film. So much so that after getting married and having a stable job, I quit that job in order to make a movie. Not just any movie, but a movie about… music (of course). A buddy and I directed and produced an independent film about local music.
Although the film didn’t get picked up, or make a penny, it was the best time in my life. Why? Because I was able to do what I loved, and to work with a very diehard & loyal music community. To be honest, I feel just as lucky now, because I still get to work in the music & media field, and I STILL get to participate in a very diehard & loyal community. I look forward to meeting and hearing from you soon.
The official term “public domain” refers to creative materials that are not protected by intellectual property laws such as copyright, trademark, or patent laws. Works are in the public domain if they are not covered by intellectual property rights (such as copyright) at all, or if the intellectual property rights to the works have expired.
As of 2021, copyright has expired for all works published in the United States before 1926. All motion pictures made and exhibited before 1926 are indisputably in the public domain in the United States.
In other words, if the work was published before January 1, 1926, we are free to use it without permission. These rules and dates apply regardless of whether the work was created by an individual author, a group of authors, or an employee (a work made for hire).
