Could you please explain the issue concerning adding text to the ebook that is like this:
This work is in the Canadian public domain OR the copyright holder has given specific permission for distribution. It may still be under copyright in some countries. If you live outside Canada, check your country's copyright laws. If the book is under copyright in your country, do not download or redistribute this work.

or is this being added automatically?
I don't understand exactly what I need to fill in.
I first want to start with converting books from the gutenberg archive (to LRF).
Later on I'd like to convert some books from a friend writer who says he does no longer sell his books, but would not mind them becoming freely available, as long as it doesn't cost him anything.
I'll try to work out the copyright issues with him in person.
But my main concern is about copyright notations on how to publish a book (that can also be found in the gutenberg archive).
