My post was not directed at you, per se, but to all who are posting links on this thread. I have had to delete posts because people are not checking the first post to see if the links are already posted. I try to keep up with this thread and put new finds on the first post to make it easy for others to view and use the links instead of going through the entire thread unless they want too. Sorry it came across as if I was only talking about you.javabird said:I did a search in this forum and also this thread to see if it was already posted, and the search came up not found. So I apologize if it was already posted, but if it was, the search function did not find it. I didn't want to read through every single post in the thread. If you have any other suggestions for how to avoid duplicate posts, please let me know.
Of course, it is legal to download a free audio book from NetLibrary and OverDrive for which your library has paid a fee just as it is legal for you to check out a book for which the royalty has been paid by your library. There is absolutely no conflict with copyrights since these audio books are licensed to you for a limited period of time during which it is clearly legal for you to play them, royalties having been paid by NL and OD to the publishers/authors. Neither NL or OD books will play on an iPod, since they are in wma protected format.2pac said:is it legal to download these free books? what about copyright by authors?
I depends on which ones you are talking about. Many of those listed here are in the public domain (like at Gutenburg) and some are offered by the author's themselves.2pac said:is it legal to download these free books? what about copyright by authors?
