800 GiB torrents with 1500k public domain paywalled papers from before 1923

Happy [public domain day](https://law.duke.edu/cspd/publicdomainday/2019/) to all! A special thought for people in the USA, who until yesterday suffered a 20-years-long winter of ever-expanding copyright.

Let me return to the [racket of academic publishers](https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2011/aug/29/academic-publishers-murdoch-socialist) who abuse copyright to enslave thousands of researchers and leech billions in public funding from cultural institutions every year. Following my [release of public domain IEEE papers](https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/8mbj9h/copy_of_10565_public_domain_but_paywalled_ieee/) and seeing the format of some other releases by other users, today I bring your attention to **[Scholarly works published until 1909](https://archive.org/details/crossref-pre-1909-scholarly-works) ([torrent](https://archive.org/download/crossref-pre-1909-scholarly-works/crossref-pre-1909-scholarly-works_archive.torrent)) and [in 1909–1922](https://archive.org/details/crossref-pre-1923-scholarly-works) ([torrent](https://archive.org/download/crossref-pre-1923-scholarly-works/crossref-pre-1923-scholarly-works_archive.torrent))**.

Please download and seed the torrents above! Or if you prefer you can add the hashes/magnet links directly, but not all clients support the web seeds provided this way.

These datasets contain 1,518,078 PDF files from various sources, often with added OCR. They were all published [before 1923](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_law_of_the_United_States#Works_created_before_1978) in international journals. I’m not providing legal advice, but if you consider them simultaneously published to USA they should all be in the public domain in the USA. Yet, publishers apply indiscriminate copyright statements to the contrary, which may constitute [copyfraud](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyfraud), and lock nearly all of them behind paywalls or other hurdles, hoping to milk some more profit for who knows how many centuries.

You can also download PDFs by individual publisher, going by their [DOI](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_object_identifier) prefix and checking the full list of DOIs ([1909](https://archive.org/download/crossref-pre-1909-scholarly-works/crossref-pre-1909-scholarly-works.txt), [1923](https://archive.org/download/crossref-pre-1923-scholarly-works/crossref-pre-1923-scholarly-works.txt)). Internet Archive can also support the direct download of individual files inside the ZIP files but that’s probably best handled by other repositories.

Library users have already reused and curated these public domain datasets to enrich some knowledge bases and open repositories which make the works more accessible. Given publishers fail to perform their duties, it’s on us to comb through the copyright status and metadata for all the scientific knowledge.

  1. Update: individual papers can now be searched by DOI, title etc. on [fatcat.wiki](http://fatcat.wiki/) to get a direct link to the corresponding PDF in the Internet Archive treasure trove.

    For instance, search [uranium year:1920](https://fatcat.wiki/release/search?q=uranium+year%3A1920) and find [a paper](https://fatcat.wiki/release/abw6yrzsujccromzxaebam2vge) with its pretty [deep link to PDF](https://archive.org/download/crossref-pre-1923-scholarly-works/10.1111%252Fj.1151-2916.1918.tb17793.x.zip/10.1111%252Fj.1151-2916.1920.tb17859.x.pdf).

  2. you should put this on legittorrents too, just for duplication. I don’t have the storage space to seed this at the moment, but hope to later this year when I finally have the funds to build my nas (HDD’s are expensive yo)

  3. Are those papers available in Sci-Hub and Library Genesis? I think the best and easiest way to keep those papers alive would be to add them to those projects and help them there. They already have a good infrastructure that can be replicated 🙂

  4. Should one build a seedbox for local/private use or should one buy a per monthly one?

  5. Any particular reason 1923 is not included? The US threshold changed to 1924 on January 1 of this year, so anything published *before* 1924 (including 1923) is now in the public domain in the USA. I don’t particularly need anything, just curious.

  6. Downloading now, was looking for this specific project. I’ll plan to seed forever. Thanks!

  7. This is the kind of technology rebels that I like … the kind who steals fire and gives to the world.

  8. “Copy right should last no longer than the patent protection for the cure for cancer would.” Is what trump should say before signing an EO that would change copyright protection.

    What can they do? Argue that their latest shitflick is more important than the cure for cancer?Any content that’s 20 years of age or older would automatically become public domain.

    Just imagine how that would impact public research as well

    Trump would be giving them the finger into one of their eyes before twisting it within the goopy spheres. Big Dick Dadyo always wins.

    For as much as they hate him he should do such an EO. Perhaps a Pardon for those who downloaded and distributed such content to further add fuel to the flame.
    Maybe he ought to as well create a commission to investigate those who refuse to release content such as locking it up behind paywalls.

    I would totally do that if I had to walk in his shoes due to how much hate is spewed by holy wood. We could have theaters play that old content without needing to pay fees to the studios. There’s an 4k restoration of starwars… Plenty of people would pay 30 bucks to watch the original series in their original glory at on the big screen with big sound.

    This EO could save the movie theater industry.

  9. Trying to jump on with a seedbox

    I’m getting this from the Tracker: [Failure reason “Requested download is not authorized for use with this tracker.”]

    For both .torrent files. Same result using DHT (I’ve enabled DHT for this).
