Yo_mama (72429) writes "The Supreme Court has ruled on Golan v. Holder, 10-545, which sought to overturn the reclassification of previously public domain works as copywritten.

"Neither congressional practice nor our decisions treat the public domain, in any and all cases, as untouchable by copyright legislation. The First Amendment likewise provides no exceptional solicitude for works in the public domain," Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in her opinion for the court."
