I've been reading the Archive discussions for each book, and keep coming across references to "transcripts". I realise the discussions are very old (ancient in Internet terms) but was wondering if these transcripts still exist?

They don't I'm afraid. There were circulated before Girls Gone By published the books but are a breach of copyright.

I've certainly seen a transcript of The School at the Chalet, but as JB says, it's in breach of copyright. Even in countries where works come out of copyright fifty years after the death of the author, none of EMBD's will do that until 2019.

It's actually 70 years after the death of the author, not 50. See here. So for EBD's work it will be 2039.

That depends on country, though - England and the US are life+70, Canada, Australia and Taiwan are life+50. That's why you can find things like EJO books and Dorothy Sayers on the Faded Page site (which is associated with Project Gutenberg Canada), and the Emily of New Moon books on Project Gutenberg Australia, but not on the main Project Gutenberg site (which is US based).

I don't know if it's just me, but I don't find reading the transcripts nearly as enjoyable as reading the actual book. I know the books can be quite expensive to buy, but I've saved up and acquired a few hardbacks of the Tyrol and Armiford books this year, and it really felt like a much better experience than reading the transcripts.

I agree, but I don't know why! It feels like more than just the difference between holding a book and reading off a screen.

:?

You can email transcripts to your e-book reader which is why I love them.

Cheers,

Faded Page is actually associated with Distributed Proofreaders Canada (DPC), not Project Gutenberg Canada. DPC do still publish some of their works at Project Gutenberg Canada, but mainly post their finished work at Faded Page.

Copyright law is a bit complex - in general, books published 1922 or earlier are in the public domain in the USA (no matter when the author died). Otherwise it depends if they renewed the copyright. In Australia, authors who died before 1950 are in the public domain, otherwise it is life +70 (life +50 until 2004, but the change isn't retroactive). The different Project Gutenberg sites only have books that are in the public domain in the country in which the site is hosted.

Disclaimer: I volunteer with Distributed Proofreaders (http://www.pgdp.net) which post etexts to the main Project Gutenberg site, and I'm also a member of Distributed Proofreaders Canada (http://www.pgdpcanada.net).
