Right to use:
Feel free to use any *out of copyright* (non-original content) work on this site as you wish as long as you do NOT charge for it. I ask only that you give it away freely as you received it.
No one can place a copyright on someone else's work without substantially editing the work and adding their own *original content*, even if that work has fallen out of copyright protection and is in the public domain. By transcribing it, OCR, or whatever means used to convert an "out of copyright" work into digital does NOT give someone authority to place a new copyright on said work. I've seen many attempt this and it is the reason this section was started — to ensure such works are free to everyone. Some may claim that they have a copyright and/or that their site's copyright places an "out of copyright" work under their copyright. This is not true. Such copyright notices, as you see here at the bottom of this web site, only protect the website's design/formatting, original content, and formatting/design added to an "out of copyright" work. It does NOT in anyway place a new copyright protection on an "out of copyright" (a work in the public domain) work (the content of that "out of copyright" item). These people claiming such copyright rights are nothing more than copyist attempting to profit from others' labors who have long since passed and who's work has passed into the public domain, as it seems they are incapable of producing their own *original* content.
