@bgcarlisle The reason this server is in Canada is that for books Canada only enforces a copyright of 50 years plus the author's life. Which is one of the shortest in the world. Technically we are signatories of the transpacific partnership, but we have not yet signed into law the clauses requiring us to extend that to 75 years plus author's life.
@Canageek There's good news on the TPP with regard to IP!
@bgcarlisle Standard Ebooks is worth a look too. It’s an open source project devoted to meticulously editing and formatting public domain ebooks (mostly from Project Gutenberg). https://standardebooks.org/
