"my Friend" Is Thinking Of Buying A Book


Recommended Posts

Now supposing "my friend" (who happens to be rather on the large size and who maintains his hair-cut with Mr Pledge and a duster), with the permission of his particularly diminutive wifelette was considering buying a book - would the imaginary book be out of copyright, I think so and would certain friendly individuals be approachable as regards scanning, watermarking and either Autumn or Christmas posting of alleged book (its only just over 400 pages - nothing to men and women of our calibre) ???

Nowt to do with Sheffield, unless someone from Wadsley has recently said "Yes" to Elizabeth Taylor :rolleyes:

Last bit not to be taken over seriously - bit like the £22 being quoted for postage ! £22 - you can have my house, pets, daughter and wife for less, no, hang on, I like the spotty cow-looking cat he he

"My Friend" may be dancing round the kitchen (not a pretty sight) right now - having nailed this book for about £5.50, my, sorry, his top bid was $70; shame about the $3 million postage he he :blink:

I should tell your friend copyright is complicated, perhaps he should read this

With books I think it comes down to defining, what the book is:

Literary Work (70 years after the death of the last author)

or

Typographical arrangement of published editions (25 years after publication)

A couple more links for him to look at
