How to Quickly Edit Public Domain Works

In many cases, you may want to edit the public domain works that you choose in order to create your very own product. Not only is this acceptable, in most cases, it is recommended. When you make the public domain work your own, you can copyright the product that you create - even though it is created with public domain works.

Furthermore, when you edit a public domain work to make it your own, and you copyright it, you can put your name on it as the author. This allows you to build brand recognition and to establish yourself as an expert in your field.

Editing a public domain work isn't as hard as you may think it is. If the work is a book, it is a good idea to find the work online, as opposed to finding the actual book. You can scan the pages onto your computer, but this takes a lot of time, and even then, the scanned pages won't be documents that you can easily manipulate. However, you can hire a typist to type the entire text into a document and email it to you.

If the public domain work is a film or music, it is easier to transfer the work to your computer, if you are unable to find it on the Internet in a digital format. You would then use audio or video software to edit the work. There are also services that you can hire to transfer film and audio to a media that you can use on your computer, such as a CD or DVD.

It is very important that you look over the public domain work carefully - especially if it is printed work. Information that is printed in the work may be out dated, or even totally obsolete, and you will need to change it or completely delete portions of the information.

While you can put your name on your edited work, it is a good idea to give credit to the original author as well. This can be done within the product itself. Just because a work is old and in the public domain doesn't mean that your potential customers haven't seen it before! It is bad form to take credit for something that you didn't originally think of yourself - even if it is legal in terms of public domain works.
