Working Group

### Aims

The [Open Knowledge Foundation](’s Working Group on the Public Domain has the following aims:

* Build a community and be a central point of reference for people interested in the public domain.
* Encourage and support the deployment of community-based initiatives for the preservation and/or the promotion of the public domain, such as The Public Domain Review.
* Coordinate the development of tools to make it easier for people to find works that are in the public domain in different jurisdiction, e.g. by means of the Public Domain Calculators and Public Domain Works.
