Re: Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

I am aware that all Libravox recordings are in the public domain, and I don't have a problem with that. I'm only suggesting permission to put watermarks on my work so the recording isn't prone to being sold. I've had a listen to the watermark you made - thanks for uploading that - but I have to agr...

Re: Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

... I don't think this is about envy. I don't need or expect money from my LV work. I just want what I placed in the PD to stay there ! It's about the effort I made to make something which should be free , and someone else using my work to rip off the unknowing consumer. Are you saying that what yo...

Re: Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

OK, the watermark occurs at about 0:38-0:40. I can't understand either the text or the watermark audio. :? And would this really stop someone from selling the recording - a 2-second garble? I wonder if a 2-second "this is a free recording from Librivox.org", not at the same time as the text and pla...

Re: Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

Hi Tricia, This is a link to a quick sample I did of a watermark. https://soundcloud.com/user-892733828/untitled-session-1-mixdown If a pirate were to remove the watermark, they would also remove part of the recording.

Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

As the audio book market explodes, a cottage industry of removing the Libravox disclaimers from recordings and posting them for sale on commercial sites has emerged.
