To celebrate Public Domain Day 2010 the Open Knowledge Foundation will host an informal meetup in Berlin. The event will focus on opportunities to reuse public domain works in interesting new ways, whether as the basis for useful web services, in research and education, or in the arts. Participants will include artists, designers, developers, scholars, legal experts and representatives from cultural heritage institutions.
The day will be a mix of showcasing examples of the reuse of public domain works, discussions, and hands on workshops. There will also be a 'public domain treasure hunt' where participants will be divided into small groups and will sift through works which have just come into the public domain in 2011 to look for interesting curiosities by lesser known artists and authors as well as obscure works by more well known creators.
