I feel like R.E.H.

If still alive would write a tale in which Conan comes tho the future and slays everyone at Project Gutenberg for redistributing his story with "no-copyright" information longer than the original text.

I'm fairly certain it's actually ironic that Project Gutenberg hosts the story with a simple notice of non-renewed copyright, which ends with a really long-ass section on the licensing rules for Project Gutenberg materials.

Just saying, THIS: "*** START: FULL LICENSE ***

THE FULL PROJECT GUTENBERG LICENSE
PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE YOU DISTRIBUTE OR USE THIS WORK "

Does NOT compute with this: "Transcriber's Note: This etext was first published in Weird Tales May and June 1935. Extensive research did not uncover any evidence that the U.S. copyright on this publication was renewed."

If Project Gutenberg specifically labels a work "public Domain" then Project Gutenberg doesn't get to have a license on the Public Domain material.

Conan would kill 'em all for that civilized BS.

Then he'd probably kill me for taking way too long to get to my point. ;-)

Yours,
