Join Us in Washington D.C. to Celebrate Culture and Heritage on Public Domain Day

About CC

Creative Commons is pleased to be a part of the second annual Public Domain Day celebration held in Washington D.C. on January 30, 2020! 

In collaboration with the Internet Archive, the Institute for Intellectual Property & Social Justice, the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property, and SPARC, this event will “bring together a diverse group of organizations, musicians, artists, activists, and thinkers” to celebrate the works entering the public domain in 2020 as well as highlight the “elements of knowledge and creativity that are too important to a healthy society to lock down with copyright law.”


The program includes lightning talks on a variety of topics, such as bias in algorithms, shared cultural resources, and technological innovation. There will also be a panel discussion on “how the freedom to build upon creative works can inspire and move culture” and live performances by the Bob Schwartz Quartet! 


January 30, 2020 | 5:30-9:00pm
American University Washington College of Law, Grossman Hall
4300 Nebraska Ave., NW, Washington, D.C. 20016
