I completely agree with you. Even though several other and fairly 
reputable publishers (including e-Sword and Logos(?) ) declare this work 
public domain, I've yet to see it is the case.  Regardless of 
reputations, I personally strive to follow the law, and the financial 
liability for publishing a copyrighted work without permission is 
astronomical.   As I've already stated (or maybe implied), my current 
plan is to finish the work and wait for 2018 when it will be without a 
doubt in the public domain (barring any new legislation).
