However, MobileRead also has an eBook server in the US for just this reason. You can request that an eBook you upload be relocated to the US if needed.

I have a request: I am looking for Ellen Glasgow's short story "The Difference". The story was first published in 1923 and the author died in 1945, so I *think* it should be PD in Canada at this point? I'm not certain -- please correct me if I'm wrong. Thank you!

Yes, 50 years after her death. It is likely PD in the US as well but you would have to check to see if she or her family renewed the copyright.

The majority of her novels seem to be available on various sites, and they *look* to be the "hey, I slapped this together as PD and now you pay me a buck" situation. But I can't find this one short story *anywhere* online.

The family renewed copyright in 1950, so renewal would next be 1978. It is not listed separately in the copyright database:http://cocatalog.loc.gov/cgi-bin/Pwe...cal&PAGE=First

But it could be part of a book which is copyrighted in the US.

Thank you for the research. I'm sad about the outcome, but appreciative that I have an answer.

Hi everybody,
I'm new here but I don't know who to ask for it: I am looking for free GERMAN ePub ebooks for my iPad. BTW, is there any possibility to use German dictionary on iPad?

Hallo analogee,

willkommen bei MobileRead. Du bist praktisch nur einen Schritt von freien deutschen Büchern im epub-Format entfernt.

Du kannst entweder hier stöbern:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=130
oder mit dieser Übersicht
http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Free...s/de/ebooks-de
nach deutschen Büchern suchen.

Betreffs eines deutschen Wörterbuches für den iPad kann ich Dir leider nicht weiterhelfen, da ich kein iPad besitze und mich deshalb nicht auskenne. Du kannst Deine Frage eventuell noch einmal im deutschen Unterforum stellen, falls Du hier im englischen Teil keine Antwort darauf erhältst.

Patricia made an excellent ebook of this title in some formats, e.g. mobi:

I've uploaded the ePub conversion of her work.

Please do not request copyrighted material. MR is a strictly legal site. You have a Kindle: you'll find numerous current autobiographies for sale in the Kindle bookstore.

Thank you.

Miloš Crnjanski - died in 1977
Wisława Szymborska - still alive
Iosif Aleksandrovich Brodsky - died 1996
Wystan Hugh Auden - died 1973

All pretty self-evidently still protected by copyright. Please read the post immediately above the one you wrote.

DO NOT REQUEST COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL OR YOU WILL BE BANNED FROM MOBILEREAD!



Is that clearer?

I'm looking for the (public domain) Sexton Blake works. I've not been able to find them anywhere. AMazon has some editions, but AZW - EPUB isn't something I'm confident about.
