January 1, 2010 is Public Domain Day, according to the Open Knowledge Foundation. And on January 1, the works of 563 authors will enter into the [w:public domain]! See OKFN’s public domain database. You can change the year on the end of the url to see list of public domain works for other years or search/browse by person or work. Pretty cool. Some of the more famous authors whose works will be released to the public domain include [w:Sigmund Freud], [w:Zane Grey], [w:Sidney Howard], [w:Ford Hermann Hueffer] (aka Ford Madox Ford), [w:Edward Sapir], [w:Constance Lindsay Skinner], and [w:William Butler Yeats].
