Public Domain Content Policy

Public Domain Content Policy

Public domain titles are permissible for distribution on Findaway Voices, but existing public domain performances may not be submitted by anyone but the original performer or organization coordinating the performance.

In short, this means that you cannot submit someone else's public domain title performance (such as a performance you find at Librivox.org), but you may submit an original recording of a public domain title provided that title meets our asset quality guidelines.

As a general rule, Findaway Voices will not provide production support or casting recommendations for the production of public domain audiobook content.
