Copyright laws differ from country to country, and a work that is in the public domain in one country is not necessarily public domain in another. The vast majority of our source texts come from Project Gutenberg, which does the (arduous) legal work to assure public domain status. It is impossible for us to verify the copyright status of every work in every country, or even many countries.
We do our utmost to ensure that all our recordings use public domain material, but it’s a good idea to check the status of a particular work before listening to or downloading our audio books that they are out of copyright in your country, otherwise you ‘might’ be violating copyright laws.
