The Durationator began in 2007 as an experiment: could you determine the copyright status of any work anywhere in the world? We were able to get most countries coded in our system. And we learned a lot.
We also commercialized the Durationator for a number of years. We found that often the data that was being inputted was not accurate, which led to frustration on our part. We decided to abandon the software project and go old school. All of our work is now done by people, not machines, so that we can confirm the issues that may occur because of bad data.
We still do reports. They are more expensive and more time consuming.
We are proud of the work that we did, and continue to be available to people for individual reports and larger, private projects.
