The "Bride of Lammermoor," novel by Sir Walter Scott: Is it in the public domain? If not, who owns the rights? Does this question infringe on 'intellectual property' law as proscribed in your 'Agreement?' Sorry, if it does, well I retract it, I suppose.

Hello. Yes, the "Bride of Lammermoor" is a public domain text. No one owns the rights to that novel or any of Sir Walter Scott's original works. From wikisource.org: "All original works by this author are in the public domain. This applies worldwide because the author has been deceased at least 100 years." http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Author:Walter_Scott Sir Walter Scott died in 1832. The "Bride of Lammermoor" may be copied freely and distributed without any sort of intellectual property infringement. Indeed, the complete novel is available on numerous websites: http://www.lammermoor.com/bride/bride.html http://www.gutenberg.org/dirs/etext96/brlam10.txt http://www.y2kcafe.cc/wscott/lammermoor.pdf Here's some good information about "public domain" texts: http://onlinebooks.library.upenn.edu/okbooks.html -------- search strategy: "walter scott" "public domain" "bride of lammermoor" I hope this helps.
