If you're like me, you're always on the lookout for a good deal, and if it's a freebie? Bonus! One of the more unappreciated gems on the Web are public domain works: works whose copyrights were issued before 1923, and have now passed into the public domain, meaning that they can be used, reproduced, or incorporated in any way without any restrictions. Permission and/or usage grants are not required in order to use these public domain materials.
What does this mean, exactly? It means that public domain works are free. Completely free. You can find these works (books, images, music, you name it) with Google. Learn how in How to Find Public Domain Works with Google.
