One of the points Ray Franz brought out in both his books is that most of the early literature is out of print and simply unavailable to Jehovah's Witnesses (or anyone else) today.
Would there be any copyright issues involved in setting up a website, or an addition to this website (just a scenario) with a database of all this old leterature? Are writings from 100 years ago considered public domain now?
I realize it would be a massive undertaking but with so many people contributing literature from their own collections...
Just having in a blurb of thought.
