Isn't this a copyright violation? 05:43, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

No, H. P. Lovecraft died in 1937, his work is therefore in the public domain. (I think) Delhovlyn (talk) 21:15, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
The issue is somewhat clouded: August Derleth published some of Lovecraft's remaining works after the author's death; Derleth tried to claim copyright to some of those works (and some publishers of Lovecraft compilations note that they published with the permission of Derleth's estate). But no, Lovecraft's works are public domain because of when he died.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:39, 5 December 2010--ゆいしあす@jawikisource 23:57, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
