Re: Commercial Use of Librivox Recordings

As I understand it, the fact that the scavengers ALTER the file is what allows them to copyright it. Slowing down the speed, adding music and sound effects, tweaking it in some minor way. The original, untouched file cannot be copyrighted. Nevertheless, minor tweaks ... I do still think that moving ...

Re: Fraudulent Copyright Claims on Youtube

It doesn't bother me when someone posts a work I have done on Librivox on YouTube or another platform as long as they don't try to profit from it. If one of my recordings shows up on YouTube and there is a commercial accompanying it, that means it is monatised, and someone is making a profit from a...

Copyright Question

I know this topic has enjoyed lively discussion, but I am still unclear about one issue: Can a third party claim a production copyright on LibriVox recordings? Can they do that with something that is in the public domain? Is it legal if they do nothing or very little to alter it? For example, if the...

Re: Lars Rolander has passed away.

So sad to hear of Lars' passing. He was such a kind, soothing soul, which came through clearly in his voice. I got the pleasure of his contributions to the LibriVox podcast and his insights and humanity always touched me. A great human being.

Re: [SOLO] "The Worshipper of the Image" Le Galliene-annise

I did not say it needs the full disclaimer, only that it definitely needs a disclaimer. I believe the abbreviated disclaimer is all right to use, isn't it, Anne? That shorter disclaimer should be in the first post.

Re: SOLO "The Worshipper of the Images" by Richard Le Gallie

Hi, Anne! I'd like Holly to get the full LibriVox experience for this independent study, so feel free to advise her as you would any other newbie. I'd like to wait for someone to volunteer to proof-listen, if possible. I will have some sessions with her to help with Audacity and recording (she has a...

Re: The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie

Thanks so much for your help, Ruth. She'll be disappointed (again) but better that than getting her hopes up. We'll find her something she likes and wants to record. She seems stuck on recording a novel that has not been recorded yet. Even though I tell her that is not important, she keeps insisting...

The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie

A student wants to do an independent study with me by reading a novel for LibriVox. (She still has to join and get a little practice first.) However, she wants to read The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie. Now, I'm aware of the issues LibriVox had in the past with the estate and I fear they still...

Re: Podcast #134&135 - BEFORE YOU PRESS RECORD: TIPS AND TRI

Great job, Piotrek! Short & sweet, well-arranged, a good amount of commentary in between each contribution. You SOUND GREAT, too. Your scripted commentary sounds very natural, conversational, and your articulation and inflection are quite lively. I hope you are moved to host more podcasts. Once agai...

Re: Path to the Podcasts

Thanks for the link, Ruth. I didn't realize there was a podcast after your 8th anniversary one. I'm still looking to see Piotrek's podcast.
