The book has been out of copyright for almost five years:
- Notes on a Cellar-Book was published in London in 1920, having been written by a British author, this text being posted by a British citizen whilst physically present in the United Kingdom so the relevant jurisdiction is British (arguable whether England and Wales or Scotland);
- UK copyright ‟for literary ! works” has a duration ‟70 years from the end of the calendar year in which the last remaining author of the work dies”;
- and the sole author died in 1933.
