Public Domain Calculator

Whilst looking for the answer to a question on fair use, I stumbled across this extremely helpful Public Domain Calculator. If the work you wish to use was published in the EU or Australia, it'll help you fathom whether it's available for public re-use.

If you're in America, there's a slightly less interactive, but equally useful, table online.

There's also some extremely interesting news about the relaxation of copyright laws in the UK to encourage innovation. A lesson from fashion's free culture?
