It is obvious that an author such as Shakespeare is in the public domain, but what about an author who was alive in more modern times, such as Pablo Neruda? Is there a website that will allow a search and definitively tell me that a work or an author's body of work is in the public domain?
sort by best latest
And one extreme case is Harlan Ellison(TM), who because of plagiarism and requests for free writing Trademarked his very name & arranged for copyright on his works to continue after his death thru attorney firms as well as family. He's angry.
