This guide explains how to find and identify which creative works are protected by copyright and which are not, reflecting the latest court decisions and legal challenges in this fifth edition. The first two chapters provide an introduction to the public domain and the use and abuse of copyright. Chapters are then devoted to specific types of works, from writing, music, art, and film through computer software, maps, architecture, choreography, and databases and collections of public domain works. There is also material on copyrights restored from the public domain, the Internet and the public domain, copyright notice requirements, and researching copyright office records. The book's reader-friendly layout includes tip boxes, bullet points, sidebars, and b&w illustrations. A companion web site collects links from the book.
