This could be perhaps the most frequently asked questions by aspiring entrepreneurs who wants to make money by the help of the Public domain. Well, first let me tell you that republishing of works coming from the Public domain is always a product of being creative and being resourceful. Of course you can’t just do “copy and paste” in all of your desired works from the public domain books available because that will be plagiarism. What you need to do is think of something that will make it more originally made by you by constructing ideas on the public domain source.
So how do you precisely do that? Indeed you don’t want to make it blatant that the work that you just had comes from the public domain because people will think that you are just too lazy to make your own book because all you just do is copy and paste. So how to avoid this kind of stereotyping? You need to put credibility on your publication. Say for example, you will need to put some introductory message or editor’s note in the first few pages of the book that comes from the public domain that you want to republish. Or perhaps you would like to do some editing on the layout of the text formation, font types and sizes can be adjusted to depending on what you desires. This action can help people to think that this republication is not their typical kind of work because the “new work” itself carries an attitude. Your aspiring consumers can feel it the way the book to the new work is presented just by merely looking on its physical appearance.
If you consider visual appearance very much then you will understand that appearance do matters for republishing one’s work specially if it comes from the public domain. Now, because you already created your own work just by being creative and resourceful you can now decide on whether to register for the new works protection by means of registering to copyright protection. The next question now is how to register for a copyright protection? As a matter of fact, applying or filing, registering for copyright protection is quite easy.
