Public Domain Manifesto

,----[ Quote ]
| The Public Domain is the rule, copyright
| protection is the exception. Since
| copyright protection is granted only with
| respect to original forms of expression,
| the vast majority of data, information and
| ideas produced worldwide at any given time
| belongs to the Public Domain. In addition
| to information that is not eligible for
| protection, the Public Domain is enlarged
| every year by works whose term of
| protection expires. The combined
| application of the requirements for
| protection and the limited duration of the
| copyright protection contribute to the
| wealth of the Public Domain so as to ensure
| access to our shared culture and knowledge.
