Hello, and welcome!

Librivox recordings are made by volunteers reading books from the public domain that no longer have copyrights (depending on what country you are from), and are then released into the public domain for public access for free for anyone. :D So no, there are no copyrights here, and we don't claim any. We just try to provide free audiobooks for everyone. Just keep in mind that someone did make them :wink: :D

Have a nice day!

Do note, please, that if you are outside the USA, your country's copyright laws apply. If an author is still under copyright for your country, then a recording of their work would also still be under copyright for you. :)
