The music broadcast by Malvern Radio JRS has been obtained from the Public Domain Project, an open-minded (open to all persons) project for the conservation and utilization of Public Domain music and film material. It consists of the following projects:
- The Public Domain Pool, a free Music database of digitized recordings
- The Public Domain Wiki, an Open content music encyclopedia that represent the full inventory of the Public Domain Pool includes all known information about a musical work.
- The Public Domain Radio that broadcasts the historical recordings as a Internet radio station.
- The Swiss Foundation Public Domain, a non-profit charitable organization that operates and supervised the Public Domain Project
The term “public domain” refers to creative materials that are not protected by intellectual property laws such as copyright, trademark, or patent laws. The public owns these works, not an individual author or artist. Anyone can use a public domain work without obtaining permission, but no one can ever own it.
