OpenFlix provides a directory of movies commonly thought to be in the public domain and works their owners are willing to let be distributed.
Public Domain refers to the body of creative works and knowledge in which no person, government or organization has any proprietary interest such as a copyright. These works are considered part of the public cultural heritage and may be freely used by all.
Use of movies in the public domain, though, is limited by difficulty of identifying works that truly do not have any proprietary interests. Through dialogue, OpenFlix hopes to resolve some of the confusion.
