If I remember correctly, movies newer than 1938 can be considered public domain because the original makers never bothered to copyright it.

But the quoted Archive.org post says that copyright arisese automatically. As long as you create the work in question, record it in some permanent fashion, and put some time and effort into said creation, you have a copyright.

Very confusing indeed.  There are definitely movies newer than 1983 that are in the public domain, although if you ask me to name any I'll run away.  lol.

I suppose if someone who might have rights to a movie in the public domain stepped forward, they could renew the copyright?  I don't know.  I don't see anyone from Bride of the Gorilla doing that, or... even still being alive, ha.

Wish there was some website with an accurate list of public domain movies.

I love it! I run the MST3k profile on myspace located at:

www.myspace.com/mystery_science_theater3k

I was introduced to ICW XP recently by someone on my friends list and I bought episode 1 as soon as I was done watching the 30 minute preview. I can't wait to see it!

 :clap: Rock on ICW XP! I hope you keep it up and keep pumping out episodes!   :clap:

I got my copy of Bride. Haven't been able to watch it yet, but it's on my to-do list.

i don't know jack about copyright when it comes to public domain stuff, but it seems logical that yeah, if you recorded your movie (and it's a movie - of course it's recorded!! lol) you have a copyright - but you gotta claim it first and protect yourself, or it expires?

i'd like to see them do an 80's flick.  some of the gooniest crap came out in the 80's. 
Get it?  Got it?  Shut up!

Received and watched Episode 101 "Bride of the Gorilla" today and it was phenomenal! Extremely well put together. Excellent production, witty and mostly laugh-out-loud material; an all around excellent and humorous experience! Loved it! 10/10 Stars

Regarding copyrights and the public domain.

In 1989 the copyright laws changed in the US. It became assumed from the point of creation that the creation was copyrighted whereas before that, the creator had to copyright the film, music, script, or whatever. So... if the creators failed to copyright something prior to 1989, or at the very least forgot to include the copyright mark and the date on the film in the credits or wherever, then it is technically public domain.

Sooo, this means there's still hope that there may be some abysmal & trashy 80s horror flicks floating around in the public domain zone! 0.0

Cool! =D

Is there anywhere one can find a list of all public domain material?

Bravo Edward J Grug the third!  :clap:

Thanks to your outstanding efforts, I can indeed confirm that "Lady Frankenstine" is in fact in the public domain

I'm also suprised to discover that the "One Million Years BC" version that we all know and love is a remake. o.o
