Hi actually it depends in which country do you live in, by the way where do you stay. Each and every country has their different rules for the standard copyright. So I hope you will get back to me on this.

I do stay in India so what rule does India imply on the copyrights act, thatís what I want to know. I hope you all can brief me on that. I am waiting for your response from your side.

In India it is actually 60 years from the date of publication and not before that. Well I donít know which authorís ebook are you having. So I would say you better check the publishing date and also calculate if its 60 years from the date of publishing, thatís what you need to look at. For more information you can also search in wikepedia about the same. search the terms as ĎList of countries copyright lengthí you will get all the required information there itself. Thatís it from my side for you.
