I recently found a book called Dorothy Must Die. It’s a YA book set in the Wonderful World of Oz, but Dorothy is a power hungry ruler. It was okay, not great, but not horrible. It was at my local library so I wasn’t out any cash for it, which was good, but it got me thinking.
I’ve seen a lot of Oz related stuff lately, is The Wizard of Oz now in public domain?
The short answer is yes, but it’s complicated.
You see, the original book The Wizard of Oz is now in public domain, but the movies are not. That means Oz is an open field now. Trot your little band of merry misfits down the Yellow Brick Road, as long as they aren’t singing a song about missing parts.
I thought about it. Not sure about it yet.
