Pretty much all the short SF stories on PG fall into that category. They're stories which were printed in magazines, mostly in the 1950s, and didn't have their copyright renewed.

What is the status of the bulk of Georgette Heyer's Regency romances? I see a single work by her in the library, but there are an awful lot that aren't. I went through a phase in my youth when I read dozens of these, but I'm not sure what the copyright status is now, and if any more might be available?

Thanks,
Charlie.

She died in 1974, so her work is still under copyright, I assume.

The Black Moth is available here because it is in the US public domain having been published in 1921.

But unfortunately Charlie is in Canada, not the US, and even that one book is still protected by Canadian copyright, so it would not be legal to download it in Canada.

Correct, Harry. Though since I regularly travel to the US for work, I could certainly download it and read it while there. It's an interesting grey area for me, since I have both US and Canadian Amazon (and Audible) accounts, maintain a US credit card, and regularly travel to the Seattle area.

You can read it anywhere[*], once you download it in the US. Otherwise, you'd have to leave all your public-domain-in-Canada-but-not-in-the-US books home when you travel (and I mean both ebooks and paper books). It's only the act of copying (including copying from the net to your computer) and distributing works that's affected by copyright, carrying your legally acquired copies to and fro is not a problem.

* Except maybe in some oppresive countries.

It's an interesting point. As you very rightly say, it would be absolutely fine to download it in the US and take it back to Canada. But, technically speaking, you'd then be breaking Canadian copyright law if you were to, say, copy it from your PC to an eBook reader while in Canada .

Isn't there fair/personal use under Canadian law? In Spain, at least, it's not a copyright infringement if you make copies for personal use (or even if you distribute it not for profit, but that's a different matter).

I'm absolutely certain that something like that would be considered "fair use" anywhere. I was only kidding about it .

Is Nevil Shute out of copyright in Canada now since he died in 1960?

If he died in 1960, his books (as of 1st Jan 2011) are now in the Canadian public domain.

It doesn't appear anyone's posted a request since late last year, so permit me to make one for the New Year

Ford Madox Ford's masterpiece tetralogy "Parade's End".

I've read and adored it in hard copy, and would be thrilled to read it on ebook. I *think* the books are now public domain, but for some reason haven't been able to find them. A perfect project for HarryT, now that he's polished off his superb Trollope omnibuses.

Here's hoping/begging...

That is public domain in Canada and in Europe (Ford died in 1939), but not in the US (they were published shortly after 1923). So, we can host it at MobileRead, and even HarryT could upload it from the UK... But we'd have to find at least some scans first (or someone should scan the books) and do the OCR, etc. Sites like Project Gutenberg or The Internet Archive are mostly US-based, so they can't have this text, and therefore we can't get it from them.
