    The Moon Books Project has relaunched and offers all of the same movies in DPG format for viewing on the Nintendo DS via Moon Shell, and also in MP4 format for your multiplatform viewing enjoyment. Also, we have horror and science fiction audio dramas and a growing library of audio books.

    So all of those movies, books, and audio books are copyright-free and available for anyone to download for free?

    They're public domain now. Out of copyright.

    Moonbooks has gone hand in hand with the scene ever since MoonShell was released.

    Yep, download and share with whoever.

    Oh, by the way. Grab Moon Shell to view the DPG format movies on the NDS.

    Then could you add that into the OP? I only glanced at the site, it never mentioned anything about out-of-copyright books so anyone could of made the mistake.

    This is true, I already knew that the Moon Books project provided texts and movies from the public domain but Suprgamr232 didn't.
    It's not stated in the first post.

    It's not stated on the homepage of the website either, which is why I said something. I don't follow the DS scene too much.

    Seriously, let it go. You made a mistake out of laziness. No big deal. Moonbooks is well known in the community.

    @[member='BrandonMullins']: Congratz on the relaunch. Site looks good :D

    Thanks WiiBricker! I think I will add something about the content being public domain on the front page.

    I'm running a test of a chat room thingy, with the movie The Wizard of Speed and Time playing in a window thingy in the chat room. I know i'm using the term too much, but if you want to check it out click on this link thingy within the next hour or so. http://bit.ly/HaC7xa

    It might be interesting to hold movie viewing sessions with this... thingy...

    Didn't moon books have text versions of the public domain books as well before? (not just audio books)

    Oh wait, I thought that said The Moon Base Project for a second.

    Now I'm a bit disappointed.

    But on topic, this service is pretty awesome. I'm definitely going to give it a shot.

    Everything released on the Moon Books project is available in the Public Domain, so it's all legitimately free

    So quiet thyself :P

    Come on people.
    We checked this out last night and found that they are indeed hosting files without any sort of copyright hovering over them.
    Otherwise the thread would have been deleted.

    So you may now continue the conversation and knock off the griping.
