1:09:45 - Wikimedia and the Public Domain
Ryan Kaldari
Wikimedia is one of the largest repositories (and users) of
public domain material in the world. Commons alone hosts
over 3 million public domain files. Increasingly, however, the
public domain is coming under threat from a variety of sources:
governments restoring copyrights on public domain material,
media companies pushing for longer and longer copyright terms,
museums and archives acting as gatekeepers to the works
they house, DMCA abuse, etc. As one of the most prominent
projects in the Free Culture movement, how do we address
these problems and work to protect the public domain for the
long term?
