Ádám Horváth: How to make your data public domain

More and more libraries dedicate the bibliographic description to the public domain by waiving all of their rights to the work worldwide under copyright law and provide access to the bibliographic description on many platforms and via many protocols in an easy way.

The Creative Commons has an appropriate legal formula for declaring works part of the public domain; this is the so called „CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain Dedication”. Libraries can use this formula to make their content freely usable. In this presentation we would like to underline the importance of public domain, we will describe in detail the necessary legal, organisational, technical and media steps to make the bibliographic records public domain.
