******* Coming in the January Issue of PUBLIC DOMAIN REPORT *******
******* GATT USHERS IN NEW ERA IN U.S. COPYRIGHT PROTECTION *******

The U.S. acceptance of the GATT will have a significant impact on certain
public domain works. In fact, certain works previously in the public domain in
the U.S. will actually have their copyright protection restored. In the
January issue, PUBLIC DOMAIN REPORT will outline some important aspects of
the GATT including the filing and notice requirements imposed on owners of
newly restored copyrights. While it is true that most works which are
public domain in the U.S. will not have their copyrights restored, this
information is vital for anyone using PD works...
PLUS
100 Irving Berlin Songs Out of Copyright in the US...Newly PD tale by Zane Grey
...several Warner Brothers films... and scores of other significant public
domain works will be presented in the January issue of PUBLIC DOMAIN REPORT.

PUBLIC DOMAIN REPORT is a monthly guide to significant songs, books, plays,
films, art, photographs, and children's works for which the U.S. copyright
has expired. Besides listing and reviewing PD works, PUBLIC DOMAIN REPORT
provides information on important legislation impacting U.S. copyright.
Each issue also includes articles detailing the actual uses of PD works,
and "User Guides" to
help subscribers avoid the common pitfalls when using out-of-copyright works.
