copyright question
« on: September 10, 2015, 04:40:03 am »
If a book is in the public domain (in such that I got it from Project Gutenberg) is it okay to quote a chunk of it on TC?

If you got it from Project Gutenberg's US site, yes.  If you got it from their Australia site, maybe, maybe not (as something can be public domain in Australia while still under copyright in the US and much of Europe).
