Default How to profit from the new public domain works...

a good time to search for what is going to be made available and put your thinking caps on, HOW can you use this information, and find some work which you can now use, completely, and not just under fair use, to create a product.

I have my eye on several things, mostly arcane, little known, but successfully sold works which may be ready for a comeback. Nothing beats making the old new again to generations who haven't been exposed.

Lots of lists popping up about what will be available.

If you don't yet know how (why?) to use the deeper Google searches, it would behoove you to do so.

ONE old book, tome, or even picture or song could be another income stream to add to your pipeline.

PUBLIC DOMAIN. A few have made their fortunes from PD, and don't forget the Government publishes a lot of stuff you could put to work for you too.
Hi Gordon,

To my understanding, virtually everything from 1923 is now public domain!

That includes books, movies, songs...

"Yes, we have no bananas!" - now the song is public domain! You can belt out your own version and sell it...

There's opportunity here - especially in creating your own "versions" or annotations. The reason why that's important is, if you modify it, you can claim copyright on the new work, and others can't (legally) copy it...

♪ Yes, we have no piranhas...
We have no piranhas, today! ♫


Best wishes,

Dien
