Happy 2008 Public Domain Day

Canada is part of the "Life+50" copyright club, so the published works by anybody who died in 1957 fell into the public domain as of today, January 1, 2008. Highlights include Dorothy Sayers, John Von Neumann, and Lord Dunsany.

The complete list also reports on who's entered the public domain in the "Life+70" countries and some of the strange situations related to the United States and government publications in some Commonwealth countries.
