Pretty comprehensive description of what does and doesn't fall within the US public domain ambit (and easy to read)

And then they made a tool for us ... YAY!

The first link is already in the wiki under the copyright and public domain info. That Cornell page gets updated each year, but the url stays the same, so we don't need to update the link. The second is new (to me at least). If it works reliably, we should definitely add that link as well. Thanks for finding and sharing it, Kim. :)
