Definition of Copyright Free material
The editor of The Public Domain Review,Adam Green,recently gave a feature-length interview to Vice magazine Italy. You can find the original in Italian here,and an English version below!
While there is a wealth of copyright-free material available online,The Public Domain Review is carving out a niche as strongly curated website with a strong editorial line. How did the PDR begin?
Myself and The Public Domain Review’s other co-founder,Jonathan Gray,have long been into digging around in the these huge online archives of digitised material – places like the Internet Archive and Wikimedia Commons – mostly to find things with which to make collages. We started a little blog called Pingere to share some of the more unusual and compelling things that we stumbled across. Jonathan suggested that we turned this into a bigger project aiming to celebrate and showcase the wonderfulness of this public domain material that was out there. We took the idea to the Open Knowledge Foundation,a non-profit which promotes open access to knowledge in a variety of fields,and they helped us to secure some initial seed funding for the project. And so the Public Domain Review was born.

Unfortunately, the definition of guarantee to a con-artist and to an honest individual differs greatly.
It seems that con-artist are getting more desperate. I haven't seen any scams where the con-artist guarantees anything. They just say, you CAN, or you COULD. I like to see an ad where con-artists guarantees an $85,000 a year check, a lap-dance everyday, and a brand new Buick in the drive-way.
