The Public Domain Manifesto

Various authors, Communia, Jan 26, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

"What is in the Public Domain must remain in the Public Domain." This is one of the principles in a new manifesto on the public domain by Communia, a European network that addresses public domain issues. "Public Domain is the rule, copyright protection is the exception," the authors assert. I have long agreed with this assessment (and its corollary, that locks on content ought to be the exception, and not the rule).
