What is “Copyright”?

Quisque suscipit in quam eget scelerisque. Fusce viverra suscipit leo, at mollis augue congue non. Nam tempus elit leo, ut molestie ligula molestie vitae. Aenean sed dui sapien. Etiam sit amet augue ultricies, ultricies arcu in, gravida dui. Ut sodales tincidunt purus nec accumsan. Quisque lacinia aliquet metus a tempor. Suspendisse accumsan scelerisque interdum. Integer venenatis neque urna. Curabitur tincidunt commodo iaculis. Vivamus facilisis odio nec ex tincidunt congue. Praesent sollicitudin bibendum nibh, consectetur malesuada libero auctor sit amet. Pellentesque lacinia ipsum et lorem cursus tincidunt. Integer scelerisque dolor quis turpis consectetur, at venenatis metus iaculis.

Cras mollis bibendum quam, sed facilisis turpis iaculis at. Duis nec finibus justo. Sed vitae ligula eleifend, varius tellus et, eleifend augue. Fusce suscipit a est sed ultricies. Nullam sed mauris lobortis magna placerat posuere. Vestibulum varius vel sapien quis porta. Nullam non rutrum sapien, sed mollis erat. Phasellus efficitur nulla vitae arcu accumsan hendrerit. Nulla dictum gravida nisl ut varius. Donec fermentum orci nec felis dapibus, id fermentum erat sollicitudin.

Writers frequently ask about whether they need permission to quote from another book. The answer is usually yes. But if the book is in the public domain that permission is unnecessary (meaning it is free to use). I don’t want to tackle the issue of “Fair Use” today, but instead provide a few links that you can use to find out if a book is in the public domain, or not.
