Just as an aside, UK parliamentary speeches are copyrighted. They are subject to Parliamentary Copyright which subsists for 50 years. So you will notice that we have no recordings of Lords or Commons speeches later than 1960 or so.

Oops :oops:

Now, there's the proof that copyright is indeed a minefield... :roll:

Thanks for clarifying Ruth!

The HathiTrust version looks PD to me - published before 1923.

It doesn't list the translator, so we cannot tell if it's PD in Life+ copyright countries (Europe, Canada - basically everywhere except the US). But that's only important if you're residing in one of those countries.

Please, PLEASE, before embarking on a solo, do two things:

(1) We do STRONGLY encourage a one-minute test (LINK) to check your technical settings. It's not an audition, but to make sure you're exporting at the correct bit rate, have your recording in mono, etc. It would be a shame to record a whole section, only to have to scrap it and redo it because of some simple setting that is incorrect.

(2) Claim, record, and get OK'd at least one section in a group project. This is to make sure you know what you're getting into. Recording a whole book isn't as easy as it seems. It isn't simply sitting down and recording. There's editing to do - and that often can take up to 5 times as long as recording does. In my experience, a ballpark estimate of 95% of brand new readers who start with a solo end up quitting before finishing. Please test the waters first before jumping in. :) Not only that, you're basically alone in a solo: you are the coordinator, and unless you have a very friendly DPL, you won't get much encouragement while doing your solo.

thanks for these wise words of wisdom.

I will take that advice for any new projects I embark upon!

I also noticed this appears to have a recording elsewhere, so I may not make this my firs t project. https://www.marxists.org/audiobooks/archive/lenin/index.htm

thanks though for this advice
