In case you missed it… 1 January is when some books are out of copyright and and can be published without royalties. This list mentions quite a few for this year but, warning!, it applies to the US. Other countries may have different rules. As you can see there are quite a few interesting works now out of copyright and not just books, but also films and music. I shall now feel free to sing Yes Sir, That’s My Baby in the bath without fear of retribution (except from my wife).
