Okay, here's one for ya. I am interested in hearing your thoughts, opinions, advise, experience.
I have a book of the complete poems by someone who died in the 1840's. It is naturally edited by a scholar who has added an introduction and notes. I've long wanted to make an eBook of just the complete poems for myself and which I can share with MR. In the copyright page, it says:
Introduction and notes copyright © Editor Name, 1992
All rights reserved
Can I make an eBook of just the poems, without the introduction and notes, and upload to MR without violating the copyright?
