Hello

I would like to contribute to this project, however I have a question:
I was looking for the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet, but I found only this source on Portuguese for free.
Is this source acceptable?
It has copyleft on the beggining, but I just want to be sure if it's public domain.

Thanks :D

Unfortunately, it is not acceptable. Copyleft is different from Public Domain: copyleft demands that all copies and modified versions of a work have the same rights in derivative works created later. Public Domain does not have this kind of demand, and we cannot guarantee that people using Librivox recordings will keep them free, exactly because they are put in the Public Domain.

I tried to find a PD version of a translation of Romeo and Juliet into Portuguese and also failed. I know there are translations from Portugal at least, but I haven't been able to find them. The link you provide also does not mention the name of the translator, which makes it impossible for us to attest it is public domain since we depend on the date of death of the translator. If the translator is Nélson Jahr Garcia, mentioned there, he passed in 2002, so it would certainly not be PD. :(

Alright then, thanks for clarifiying it for me. :D
I thought that copyleft and PD were the same thing; next time when I find another work on copyleft now I know they aren't in pubic domain.

Hi, there! This is my first recording, so please let me know if I'm missing anything. I'd love to do Ophelia's monologue in Act IV of Hamlet from verse 148 to her exit, if that's alright. (It's intercut, but it's on one of the sites you suggested; let me know if that's a problem)

Seems okay to me. But you would benefit from doing the One Minute test first so we can verify that your equipment is set up properly before you record something longer.

Thanks, Todd

Here's a Russian translation of Hamlet by Nikolai Polevoy, originally published in 1837, here in a 1887 edition:

https://imwerden.de/pdf/shakespeare_hamlet_perevod_nikolaja_polevogo_1887__ocr.pdf

It's an abridged translation that was apparently widely used in 19th century stage productions.
