Copyright Information Resources

Here are some of the websites I’ve used in the past to investigate the ins and outs of copyright law. Please remember that copyright law is complicated. The sites below are giving out copyright information to the best of their various abilities, but they are not giving legal advice. You should always seek out an attorney if you’re in doubt about the copyright status of something you want to include in your art.

For further reading on issues relating to the public domain, Mr. Hirtle from Cornell University recommends the book titled The Public Domain: How to Find & Use Copyright-Free Writings, Music, Art & More by Stephen Fishman.
