Who really owns the public domain?

So I recently got my copy of, The Public Domain, a NOLO (do-it-yourself law book). (Thanks Janet.) It’s been a little slower of a read than I had hoped, but it is absolutely fascinating. I had never considered how much money is really available for people who understand how to organize or distribute materials from the public domain. So far the main lesson I’ve got from the book is, s/he who successfully markets the public domain, really owns it :) Granted this includes development, distribution and promotion, but really it seems to be the truth. This book is loaded with valuable case studies and all sorts of useful information. I’m looking forward to some more good reading.
