Public Domain Day

Since 2018, every year on January 1st I have celebrated Public Domain Day by publishing a post about it and releasing one of my own works to the public domain. To learn more about the public domain, I recommend you read my first PDD post, “Now Don’t Fucking Touch It,” which explains how copyright law works and how egregiously restrictive it has become in the past century.
