    If a content was published before January 1, 1923. You can freely use it for free without permission. I don't understand so which of the scenarios are correct:

    1- If the content was published in Canada?
    2- If the content was published in the U.S and used in Canada?


    Does that rule also apply to Canada?

    im pretty sure that it does not apply in the united states. i heard that it is that way in the united kingdom, so any dominion/ex colonial country like canada or australia might have the same policy.

    Anything written at that time will stand out for being one of three things:

    1:Retarded by today's standards
    2:Completely inaccurate and didn't stand up to time
    3:spoken in some crazy sounding English

    You are better off re-writing new ideas. ;)

    Someone writes:

    "A lot of people like to smoke pot. It makes your temples ring and it opens up your mind in ways that retarded hippies only dreamed"

    then you heist and write:

    "Many across the world love to light a joint. It opens your sixth sense and that is why it is illegal."

    Just examples :sly:
