A stocking present for authors

Post by Steve »

Every January 1, another year's-worth of copyrighted material enters the public domain. On New Year's Day, the stuff from 1928 will do so. Now you won't have to worry about paying anyone a royalty when you sing "Makin’ Whoopee!" on karaoke night.

Have to wait 3 years (1931 copyright) but could be part of our logo
