I’ve just finished cataloging my latest solo audio book recording:
A Room with a View, by E.M. Forster
As with all LibriVox audio books, this one is free for you to download, share, copy, mash-up, whatever. Enjoy!
In case you’re curious as to WHY our audio books are free and have no restrictions on their use, it’s because we record only public domain texts and release all our recordings back into the public domain. What is this “public domain” you say? From wikipedia:
Public domain comprises the body of knowledge and innovation (especially creative works such as writing, art, music, and inventions) in relation to which no person or other legal entity can establish or maintain proprietary interests within a particular legal jurisdiction. This body of information and creativity is considered to be part of a common cultural and intellectual heritage, which, in general, anyone may use or exploit, whether for commercial or non-commercial purposes. Only about 15 percent of all books are in the public domain, and 10 percent of all books that are still in print.
There. Now you know. An easy rule of thumb for books is: published before 1923 in the U.S. = Public Domain.
