I want to sell books through my business. Most of the books Im referring to are religious and philosophical works that are not even attributed to anyone in particular and are also very old. What would the laws stance be if I wanted to manufacture and sell them? Someone said that I just have to offer my own translation or interpretation for it to be legal. Another said that theyre public domain and I can do what I want. Whats the actual legal stance?
