2019 Public Domain Spectacular

January 1, 2019 @ 9:30 am – 5:00 pm

On Jan. 1, 2019, thousands of artistic works from 1923 will enter the public domain in the United States.

To be in the public domain means works can be freely copied, modified or transformed without needing permission from a copyright holder. SAPA TV, Springfield’s public access TV station, will be airing a special to celebrate this event, followed by some newly public domain silent films on Comcast Channel 8 and VTel channel 160.

The “2019 Public Domain Spectacular” will premiere at 9:30 a.m., with encore showings at noon and 2:30 p.m. SAPA TV serves the towns of Springfield, Weathersfield, Chester and Charlestown, N.H.
