Now in the Public Domain

... works from 1924 that should have been released 20 years ago except for Gershwin's asshole heirs. Note that some of these items have already been lost, they are so old. This is why excessive copyright is a bad idea. But we are now free to play with, among other things:

* The first film adaptation of Peter Pan
* When We Were Very Young by A.A. Milne
* Tarzan and the Ant Men by Edgar Rice Burroughs
* The Man in the Brown Suit by Agatha Christie
* Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin
* Santa Claus Blues by Charley Straight and Gus Kahn (recorded by Louis Armstrong)

So go make some stuff.
