ist eine Nonprofit-Organisation, die auf ihrer Website 1,8 Millionen Seiten US-bundesstaatlicher Fallrechtssammlungen ohne Copyright (public domain) und weitere Restriktionen veröffentlicht.

Mit dem Open-Access-Angebot, das am 18. Februar 2008 startete, löste die Organisation eine Revolution im Zugang zu bisher kostenpflichtigen Rechtsinformationen aus[1]. Public.Resource.Org ist die größte kostenfreie Rechtsbibliothek[2].

Die Organisation veröffentlicht zusätzlich über das Internetangebot Flickr 10.000 Bilder, darunter über 6.000 Bilder der Smithsonian Institution[3] unter Public Domain oder einer Creative-Commons-Lizenz.
