Can I copy or reproduce the whole of an out-of-copyright work?

Or are there restrictions for works that are not in copyright?

Answer

If a work is out-of-copyright, you can reproduce it or copy it in full, without restriction.  However, please note that if there is an editor or illustrator, you will need to confirm that their contributions are also out of copyright.  Further, the typography in published work is protected for 25 years after publication.

Information on the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act, 1988 is available here.  A guide on Intellectual Property rights is availabe for background information.
