Hamilton, Edmond: The Stars, My Brothers, v.1, 5 Apr 2008

As explained by the Project Gutenberg transcriber, this illustrated scifi story by Edmond Hamilton was first printed in the May, 1962 issue of Amazing Stories Fact and Science Fiction and there is no evidence that the U.S. copyright on the publication was renewed.

OK -- I'm perplexed. I clicked on your attachment curious as to why you attached an HTML file rather than the Mobipocket file. I then got a web page that read:

Quote:
Information

To comply with Canadian copyright laws the file you have requested cannot be served from this server.

Since the file you have requested is in the public domain in the United States, it can be found at the following US location:

Ummm????

And the above entry says "Last edited by Patricia : Today at 04:22 PM. Reason: I moved the book to the US server."

Does this mean that the MobilRead server is in Canada?

Apparently at least one of them is, Elsi. This is a new approach that Alex devised to ensure that the server holding a particular ebook is in a country where it is certain to be in the public domain. I assume from the first line that the default location for ebooks is in Canada. I also assume that to be safe it was decided to move this particular ebook to a U.S. server.
