Shakespeare’s works, for example, have received numerous film

Prince reportedly had hundreds upon hundreds of unreleased songs, albums, and even movies in his “vault”. If true, he had so much music in the vault that a new album could have been released every year for the over next 100 years. Prince wrote more than one thousand songs, making him a poster boy for Archive Panic. Most were released under his own name, some were released under pseudonyms and pen names, while others were recorded and released by other artists. Associates and “spinoff bands” of the latter mostly involved others recording vocals over his own songs with his own lyrics (Vanity 6, Apollonia 6, Mazarati, Madhouse, The Family), with some such spinoff bands managing to win creative independence (Sheila E., The Time), or others not being involved with him at all (Wendy Lisa considering Prince’s conflicts with them led to The Revolution breaking up, that’s not at all surprising.) We have a page for them over at Prince’s Associates.

Examples of such works include the English language, the formulae of Newtonian physics, the works of Shakespeare and Beethoven, and the patents on powered flight. This also applies to many old movies, cartoons, novels, poems, comics, and various other works of art, science, and general knowledge. In general, Public Domain works make for a great resource for those who need entertainment but don’t have a lot of cash. Shakespeare’s works, for example, have received numerous film adaptations with their own unique spin on The Bard’s tales. People can also use those works, in part or in whole, within a new creative work (someone can quote as much Shakespeare as they want within a film). (After 1963, renewal became optional.)

replica goyard handbags There’s a romance novel titled Stranger In My Arms that actually deconstructs this trope: The heroine’s husband has been presumed dead for years, and she isn’t too sad about it because he was unfaithful to her and never seemed to enjoy having sex with her. Then, out of the blue, he returns Back from the Dead, says that he’s a changed man, and proceeds to be passionate and devoted to her in a way he never was before. The heroine is pleasantly surprised, but can’t shake off the feeling that rakes don’t reform that thoroughly, and gets uneasy when her friend uses her husband’s changed behavior to justify her staying with her own physically abusive husband in the hope that he’ll change eventually. It turns out that the heroine’s husband did die all these years ago, and her current “husband” is actually her husband’s half brother who learned about her through diaries her husband left behind and decided to use his impersonation abilities to be the loving husband she never had replica goyard handbags.
