Re: Volunteer CD Covers! Working Thread

Any photos pre the cutoff date are assumed to be OK for example - you couldn't use a photo of an author who was born 1890 and died in 1950 taken in 1930 but you could use one taken in 1920. As Caroline said in her explanation it is complicated but if we stick to that it should be safe , and if it is...

I'm happy to wait, it is a Solo so it's not holding anyone up.

Re: Covermakers Chat Thread

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain". Most galleries make money by selling prints so if they spend good money digitising their collections properly they do not want people downloading...

Re: [TRAVEL] Korea and Her Neighbors by Isabella L. Bird - availle

spot check fine, and mountain travels fine - it is interesting to hear about all our garden plants growing where they came from. She was amazing going to all these "unvisited" places by herself, though maybe it was because she was by herself that people felt curious not threatened. In my youth we go...

Re: SOLO Project Daedalus by Thomas Hoover

I'm sorry but you have managed to pick one the few books on PG that is not copyright free, it does tell you on the front page. So we can't make our recordings copyright-free when the text is not.

Re: Weekly/Fortnightly Poetry Suggestions

It is - and it should be in the catalogue somewhere if it is PD in the USA, but in general we try to keep the weekly poem able to be read by all readers, and if he died in 1967, it is not PD for non USA readers - maybe the short poetry collection would be a good place?
