Public Domain Question

Sharon asks…

How can I find out if a film is in the public domain?

For example, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, or Nosferatu. How do I find out if these are public domain films?

Sandra asks…

When does a commercially made recording enter the public domain?

Would a recording from 1916 or 1917 be in the public domain yet? There are no copyrights on the music itself as it is a classical piece authored in the 1800s. The one in question was commercially recorded by Victor. To me this subject is not exactly clear-cut. Any info on this subject you could give would be appreciated.

scottparat answers:

Yes, anything from 1916 or 1917 is in the public domain. (It’s only works from 1923 and sooner that you need to be concerned with.) You’re free to do whatever you like with it!
