"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).
