Public Domain Day 2020 is coming up on 1 January – let’s coordinate around events and communications!
- blog post on the Wikimedia Space blog (multilingual, possibly to be reused by the Wikipedia Signpost) – @Gnom (co-authors and translators wanted!)
- communications from the publicdomainday Twitter handle – @Gnom together with Daniel Boos and Sebastiaan ter Burg
Please reply to this post if you’re thinking about hosting a local Public Domain Day event, or if you know of an artist or author that should be featured in our Public Domain Day communications!
For example, one artist that will definitely make headlines is Richard Strauss, a famous German composer who exerted his political influence to extend copyright protections for composers. All of his works will enter the public domain in the European Union and other countries. Also, George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue will enter the public domain in the United States.
