Only a few more days until the glorious weekend and I hope you all have something fun planned! Thanks to Peter Evans, Stephen Fishman, Kevin Hawkins, Wojciech Kotwica, Christian Steiner, and others for helping me find this information!) What if the book is copyrighted in some countries, but public domain in others?
