Our organization believes that because the laws of the land are in the public domain, they should be accessible by the public without restriction and especially without charge. — http://openjurist.org/
OpenJurist is a public domain resource for case law in the United States. All Supreme Court and Federal Appellate Court Decisions, including "~647,000 opinions and other transactions from the United States Supreme Court, beginning with the first session in 1790; and Lower Federal Courts, as published in the Federal Reporter beginning in 1880," are available on OpenJurist.org in the public domain.
OpenJurist has officially surrendered all copyrights in the case law under the CC0 public domain dedication.
Works by the U.S. government are in the public domain, but not necessarily accessible to the public. OpenJurist has worked to rectify this by releasing Supreme Court and Federal Appellate Court Decisions since the 1700s under the CC0 public domain dedication.
