Public Domain Film Resource

Understanding copyright law and how it applies to films and motion pictures can be a tricky process. Similarly, figuring out which films fall into the public domain can be exceedingly difficult; because motion pictures have been filmed using different technology as it became available over the years and the medium was at first unknown in terms of its staying power and artistic potential, professionals often did not keep consistent archives of films. Since films are also a multi-media endeavor, often there are different copyrights that apply to items such as background music and production music, the actual footage and the script for the film itself. The Internet has further complicated the film industry by offering a multitude of films available online, many of which are illegally offered although they claim to be free.

RoyaltyFreeMusic.com offers valuable resources about public domain film that can help take some of the guess-work out of the process of understanding copyright protection. Professionals and students involved in the film industry often use classic films and important motion pictures to help further their scholarship in different film-making techniques and practices. Often finding focused resources can be difficult because of the uncertainty and incomplete nature of film libraries. The public domain film resource at RoyaltyFreeMusic.com offers not only an overview of some of the copyright laws and important elements of film, but also the opportunity for film professionals, students and any other individuals interested in film history to view public domain films directly on the site.
