    Virginia Woolf

    Hey,

    I noticed that there are several of Virginia Woolf's works on the site, however there doesn't appear to be her essay/novella/whatever you'd like to call it, A Room of One's Own. Wondering if this is available or if it is still under copyright.

    I found the e-text at http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks02/0200791.txt, but the site warns, again:
    Project Gutenberg of Australia eBooks are created from printed editions which are in the public domain in Australia, unless a copyright notice is included. We do NOT keep any eBooks in compliance with a particular paper edition.

    Copyright laws are changing all over the world. Be sure to check the copyright laws for your country before downloading or redistributing this or any other Project Gutenberg file.

    Not really, if you read the 'warning' they have slightly different copyright rules in Australia.
    I have a plan: attack!

    Indeed, I have no knowledge of copyright laws other than in my own country, and of the website's warning in Australia, so I warn anyone in advance to use caution.

    Australia does have more liberal laws... I sometimes I wish I lived (and published this site from) there.

    Woolf is an author who straddles the line here in the US. Earlier works are public domain, later ones are not.
