I found my way here after some detective work because Bauer Audio Books are listing LibriVox content on Google Play Music, but not saying where it comes from. I believe your books are all public domain (CC0), but I just thought it was cheeky not to at least mention the source.

Hello rawnsley! Welcome to Librivox!
There have been "cheekier" uses of librivox content and there's nothing that can be done about it.
The good that comes out of it is when people, like you, find their way to the original Librivox source :D

I second that, rawnsley! Welcome to the LV playground. Your comments are much appreciated.

But, given all the free information I mine off of the internet every day, from hundreds and thousands of folks who just want to share what they know, it makes me feel good to be able to infuse a little bit into the giving circle, and if others pick it up and spread it further, good for me (some of my LV books are monetized on YouTube by complete strangers). Of course, paying tribute (giving thanks) builds good karma for the recipient and it encourages the giver to keep on giving, so I fervently hope that never disappears from the human psyche. It won't from my end. :D
