"Public Domain is when copyrighted has expired, and the work is available for public use. If work was created after January 1, 1978, it belongs to the artist for life plus 70 years. If a work was published before 1923, it is now in public domain. If it was published between 1923 and the end of 1963, its term of protection is 23 years with renewal possibility for a total of 67 years."
