Abstract

When a copyright expires or is not properly renewed, a work falls into the public domain and can be freely reproduced, distributed, and displayed. David Pierce explains how a number of classic films from the studio era entered the public domain, including A Fool There Was, Phantom of the Opera, Night of the Living Dead, Charade, Love Affair, Farewell to Arms, A Star Is Born, Dixiana, Topper Returns, Royal Wedding and Father's Little Dividend.
