Election Day!

A political cartoon showing a woman getting ready to leave the house while a man sits in chair with two crying babies. The woman is standing next to a dining table with her back turned, apparently getting ready to leave the house, and she looks back over her shoulder, down through her spectacles at her husband. She is wearing a bowler hat with a long feather, and a coat and tie over her long skirt. She carries an umbrella over her forearm.Her husband is seated on chair at the dining table, holding two wailing babies. He has a look of worry or confusion on his face and an apron tied around his waist. A cat stands next to him with her fur raised and her back arched. There are plates scattered on the table and one broken on the floor beneath. A sign hangs on the wall that reads "Votes for Women."Beneath the illustration is "Election Day!" On the sides of this caption is a ballot and a ballot box.

Public Domain

Public Domain is a copyright term that is often used when talking about copyright for creative works. Under U.S. copyright law, individual items that are in the public domain are items that are no longer protected by copyright law. This means that you do not need to request permission to re-use, re-publish or even change a copy of the item. Items enter the public domain under U.S. copyright law for a number of reasons: the original copyright may have expired; the item was created by the U.S. Federal Government or other governmental entity that views the things it creates as in the public domain; the work was never protected by copyright for some other reason related to how it was produced (for example, it was a speech that wasn't written down or recorded); or the work doesn't have enough originality to make it eligible for copyright protection.
