Thumbs up Free e-books for catholic saints

Ron,

I found a great source for valuable saints books and works,do you give clearance for this link?

There are plenty of free e-books for saints and early fathers of the church to download and read, yet i am worried about copyrights issues, any thoughts???

P.S: i learned from a friend who lives in the US that the copyright law in the US states that copyrighted books for dead authors stays for maximum 70 years after his death, so in this case and since the authors are dead centuries ago there might be no problem whatsoever.

Books published prior to 1923 are out of copyright in the U.S.
I can't determine if all of the books on his site are out of copyright.

Thank you Ron. The majority (if not all of them) of these books are far older than 1923.
