I’m worried about sinning and am wondering if anyone could help me with this.
I know that reading copyrighted material is stealing, especially if the author is still alive and doesn’t want people to read his works for free.
BUT What happens if the author is dead?
I found this book: geocities.com/Athens/Ithaca/7194/
“The Mystical City of God” originally written by St. Mary of Agreda who has passed away, and has been translated by a person who may or may not be alive.
Would it be okay to read that book on the website?
Or would it be better not to in case the person who translated it wants payment for his works?
I hope someone can help!
