How can I tell if something is in the public domain?

My document title

If you are copying directly from an original source published prior to 1900, the work is most likely in the public domain and you will not need permission to copy it. Any work published or republished after 1900 needs to be researched to determine if it is in the public domain.

To determine if the work you want to copy is in the public domain, you should contact the rightsholder directly.
