A Note on the PDFs Listed Below

Readers will note that each volume of this PDF editions presented and linked below contains a copyright notice by David J. Romagnolo, the editor and publisher of the Marx2Mao website (www.marx2mao.com), who scanned and created this superb series of facsimiles. [Web viewing versions in HTML are presented and linked on the right]

David claimed a copyright on the presentation (not the content) of these digital incarnations of Lenin's works, but admitted himself that he isn't sure whether such a claim has legal standing. In fact, he is right to express doubt about this. The law and court precedent is quite unambiguously clear here: "slavish reproductions" of public domain works (such as the collected works of Lenin)... whether they be photographic bit map scans, or the meticulously re-type-set digital files David produced... CAN NOT be claimed to be owned by anyone.

As always, we at Marxists Internet Archive encourage the widest possible distribution and sharing of the materials we archive, but, while we share Dave's wish this material be distributed freely, and without charge, the fact is that under the existing bourgeois intellectual property law neither David, nor we, nor anyone else, actually, have the legal right to restrict how this material is used or re-distributed.

We thank David J. Romagnolo for his years of work meticulously re-creating a stunningly high resolution, re-type-set digital archive of Lenin's Collected Works – making this was an outstanding service to the workers movement – and we encourage users to remember to credit David J. Romagnolo and www.marx2mao.com when reproducing or using these files.
