Holmes (Finally) Enters The Public Domain In The U.S.

No, not me!  I'm talking about the other Holmes, the one who's - arguably - slightly more famous than I am.

I mentioned this case back in February, and now a decision has come down, freeing all of the pre-1923 stories of Sherlock Holmes for public use.  I'd call this a victory for those of us who favour a reasonable amount of copyright protection, rather than the ridiculous version that corporations seem to be hellbent upon creating.
