Public domain I am not sure. The term is in wide use (see for example
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/copyright-and-the-value-of-the-public-domain).
Interestingly, though, it applies to neither The King James Bible nor
Peter Pan. How wierd is that.

"Fair use" has an equivalent ("fair dealing"). Similar to US fair use
but not the same.
