  1. I had a quick question on the licensing rights of the pdf. Seems that their licensing has expired and they are freely available. I have started a digital library in USA and just wanted to know if I can have these titles in my digital library.

    1. Yes, you can continue with the title. But it is hard to find License is expired or not. So, be ready for DMCA. Goodluck.
