Public Domain Movies Question

William asks…

If a movie is public domain, is it legal for me to download it for free?

I’ve got my eye on the 1922 horror movie Nosferatu. I read that it’s in the public domain, and I’d like to have it. However, I’d really like to avoid breaking any laws. So, seeing how it’s a public domain film, is it legal for me to download the movie from a file sharing site?

scottparat answers:

It depends on what you’re downloading. The movie itself is public domain, but somebody converted a print of the movie to a digital file, and that FILE is not public domain unless the person who made it released it that way. It is perfectly legal for anyone to obtain a copy of the original film and copy it, and they then own the rights to that copy.

You have to know who owns the rights to the file.
