    I thought I should tell you that Things To Come is not in the public domain. This is a misconception.
    The film is even listed in a complaint as one of the examples of films which are no longer in the public domain since the GATT / URAA came into effect in 1996.

    That sounds totally weird for me! How a film that was in the public domain is no longer? And the film is not even American! For me the American laws of copyright are a messy, they make almost no sense, and who make them are those that have money = Disney and the stupid Mickey. Curiously Disney loves to use characters in the public domain on their films, just to don’t need to pay the copyright to other. If they start to put the things that are in the public domain back to copyright, they are going back to the Gutenberg Bible! Sorry, but those guys really scary. It seems they just care for money, even been millionaires (billionaires) and don’t give a damn to share culture or free universities.
