Changing the FAQ entry was right, it should have been done earlier. I
don't see how your and Chris' comment relate.

I think we should offer no information about any details. I have thought
earlier about and actually started writing a text which explains what
copyright means and how it affects us. The purpose would be to help
people understand why we cannot or can use some texts, but not to give
any legal details about any copyright legislation. It would be good to
have links to external FAQs or e.g.
http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Gutenberg:Copyright_How-To. Court
decisions are not very useful for our purposes.

One question which arises every now and then is why we cannot use some
texts which are not in original condition, like Thayer's.
