Pls advise - uploading US public domain books

I've searched around and can't find exactly the information I need.

I have several books that are in US public domain, published before 1923.
However, the author did not die until 1976.

Are these books considered to be public domain in Canada also?

If not, how exactly do I upload them? I understand that MR has a US server available, but how do I access that?

Thanks for any insight.

They are not public domain in in Canada, but they are public domain in the US, so they can be uploaded to the US server. I believe you cannot do it directly, but you can upload normally and then report your own post so a moderator can move it.

But if you are in Japan, you should only upload what is public domain in Japan...

Exception would be if you work at the US embassy and could do it from your workplace.

I am touching back on this thread because I just realized nobody actually answered one of my main questions. To wit,

Quote:
how exactly do I upload them? [books in public domain in US but not Canada] I understand that MR has a US server available, but how do I access that?
For the other newbs, I found by trial, that you need to upload the book as normal, and then use the "Report Post" button, and provide an explanation in the the dialog that you need this attachment transferred to the U.S. server.

Simple to do, but difficult to find the guidance.
Hope this helps some other bewildered soul.

Just upload normally and report your own post (the "!" button) saying that you want the attachment(s) moved to the US server, a moderator will diligently do it.
