I would be thrilled to have Gil Vicente in the catalog. Unfortunately, considering we never have enough Portuguese speaking volunteers around even to record a 12 chapter novel in less than a year, considering a drama with twelve characters (like this one) or more is unrealistic. We need more people who are willing to record in Portuguese to be able to dream of recording Gil Vicente. :)

Very brief...

Yes, we use the Public Domain portal. Just don't forget to make sure that the book you want to read is Public Domain both in Brazil and in the US, where our servers are. The rule of thumb for the copyright laws in teh US is: before 1923 is ok. The copyright in Brazil is death + 70 years. The Public Domain portal, organized by the Brazilian Government, has also works which are not PD in Brazil, only offered by the authors under different licenses (such as the thousands of PHD theses you'll find there).

To get started, I suggest reading. :) All the procedures are explained in our FAQs (usually topics on the top of each section of the forum) and the wonderful wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Main_Page The answers to most of the questions new volunteers have are there.
