Audio book commons


The New York Times has a story on LibriVox, a community of 1,800 volunteers reading out of copyright books and releasing them as public domain audiobooks. We mentioned LibriVox’s one year birthday earlier this month.

The Times article mentions two more audiobook projects using public domain books: Literal Systems, which releases recordings under Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs terms, and the Spoken Alexandria Project, which releases recordings under Attribution-NonCommercial after five years or 100,000 downloads from Telltale Weekly, whichever comes first.
