Public Domain Day
On January 26 was held the Public Domain Day in Toulouse. In the morning, a Wikipedia & Wikidata edit-a-thon was organized at the Musée des Augustins, the fine arts museum. The afternoon was at the Library, with a conference about the public domain: general introduction, economical impact of being out of copyright, relationship between Wikimedia projects & public domain, the “living public domain”… The day ended at the cinema, with the projection of a short film by Max Linder and of the movie His Girl Friday.
