    "At the time, DeRosa was an English professor teaching a course with the Heath Anthology of American Literature, a textbook she said cost about $90.

"Sherlock Holmes" Is Now Officially Off Copyright and Open for Business - 0 views

  •  
    "The legal case of Klinger v. Conan Doyle Estate that settled the claim actually rested on an interesting issue, whether a copyright claim can persist on a character even if the works depicting that character have fallen out of copyright. The defense of the Doyle estate went something like this: sure, Arthur Conan Doyle's stories are now at least 90 years old, but other stories about Sherlock Holmes are still under copyright, therefore Sherlock Holmes is still under copyright. Judge Richard Posner didn't buy the argument, and he ruled that Sherlock Holmes, the character, is now in the public domain."

The 10 Most Important Dystopian Books and Films of All Time - 0 views

  •  
    "Dystopian literature is specifically a hyperbolic view of a familiar society-one that exaggerates social ills in order to make a point about society's flaws. It's also the opposite of utopian literature, creating a world in which the supposed "ideal society" is actually the worst idea possible, ultimately leading humankind to ruin."

Why Isn't Gatsby in the Public Domain? - 0 views

  •  
    "We feel the pernicious practical effects of lengthy copyright terms every day. For example, a study last year of books on Amazon showed that books published after the critical public domain cut-off date of 1923 are available at a dramatically lower rate than books from even an entire century before. The result is a "missing 20th century" in the history of books."
