Authors whose works enter the public domain in European nations (excluding Spain and Belarus) at midnight include:

@Vordus Nineteen-Eighty-Fortnite becomes real in 2021

@Vordus Ooh, in that list there's also composer Kurt Weill. He composed songs for many of Bertolt Brecht's plays, and while Brecht's texts are not yet in public domain, I'm glad that at least the tunes can be used freely now.
