Gutenberg, I instinctually checked
it out and scanned it into the
computer. So I can offer a copy to
anyone who wants one, and has an FTP
site to upload it to.

Does PG have guidelines for verifying a book is in PD before copying it? I mean besides "its really old, more than a hundred years, so it must be OK"? Is there a procedure that was used to vet the status? One mistake is all it will take to destroy the good name and works of PG and other projects by association.
