    If you are working on building a module for SwordSearcher that you might want to share, please be mindful of copyright. You should only share modules that contain public domain material, or material for which you have obtained permission to share.

    Here is a helpful chart that you can use to determine the public domain status of a work:

    http://copyright.cornell.edu/resources/publicdomain.cfm

    It is updated annually.

    I have attached the PDF of the chart as of Jan 2016 in case the web site is unreachable.

    That's a good resource, Brandon. Thanks. It's a shame it's so complicated, but at least if one has to find out, he can at try to work his way through that chart.
