Abstract: "In November of 2001, the Center for the Public Domain at Duke Universitys School of Law held a conference on the public domain. The public domain was defined as belonging to the outside of the intellectual property law system and as consisting of the material that is free for all to use and to build upon. The conference touched upon the history and the theory of the public domain and proceeded through a 'state of the public domain' report in three subject areas--the digital realm, culture, and science. In a way, the conference launched an ongoing discus-sion and debate regarding the public domain and how it should be preserved, guarded, and enriched."
