Looks like we have a big ally in the digitisation of
public domain content
"The Europeana Foundation has published a policy statement, the Public
Domain Charter, to highlight the value of public domain content in the
knowledge economy. It alerts Europe's museums, libraries, archives and
audiovisual collections to the fact that digitisation of Public Domain
content does not create new rights in it."

Somehow. They worked on it with COMMUNIA (led by NEXA Center for
Internet & Society at Politecnico di Torino), a friend organization
which made several initiatives such as the Public Domain Manifesto (you
can see several chapters on
) and the
which was celebrated by some chapters (I
remember Italy and Poland).
