As per Bridgeman Art Library v. Corel Corp. (36 F. Supp. 2d 191 - SDNY 1999), exact photographic reproductions of public domain works cannot be protected by any sort of copyright under United States law because they are not considered "original works". Therefore, we treat as public domain any scan we obtain where the underlying work is in public domain under United States law.

We do not have control over where are printed books being shipped to since they are printed and ordered by a third party. It is up to the individual purchaser to make sure that the book they are ordering can be legally imported into their country where copyright laws may vary from the US laws.

While we may occasionally display reprint information for books reprinted by or produced by other publishers, WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR BOOKS PRODUCED BY OTHER PUBLISHERS NOR ARE WE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL OBTAINED FROM A DIGITAL ARCHIVE AND DISPLAYED ON OUR SITE VIA A SEARCH FUNCTION OR ANYTHING SIMILAR. Please contact the appropriate publisher and/or archive directly with copyright questions.
