Within the copyright system, content within the public domain and content licensed under open licenses, such as the Creative Commons licenses, form a core of materials that are freely available to users and creators to adapt and build upon.  This event will discuss the role of the public domain, new materials entering the public domain this year, the impact on projects including Wikipedia, and the interaction with Creative Commons licensed projects.  Also, this is a great opportunity to meet others involved in the Wiki and CC communities in DC and exchange ideas.  
A meet-and-greet reception will follow the event (and include time for planning future collaboration.)
