Public Domain…Or Not?

Hi Angela,

How are you feeling this week? With the e-zine, publishing and the nonsense from Amazon, I don’t see how you can put up with the stress it can create.

I have a copyright question. I am working on a manuscript adapting one of Shakespeare’s plays for the education market. If I wanted to include Shakespeare’s original play, will I be able to do it? The basic play, is in the public domain. I have typed the original play from a collection printed in 1825. Your suggestions are valued and appreciated.

Thanks

The play is in the public domain.

There’s a great chart on public domain, showing dates, here:
