Hello,

Does anyone know of any websites with lots of CC0 books available? I've managed to track down a handful, but was hoping to locate a sizable number of them with a wide variety of subjects.

Thanks for your time!

"CC0" is a Creative Commons synonym for Public Domain.

The main source is Project Gutenberg.

There are several projects that turn these into nicer ebooks:
Standard Ebooks makes handcrafted books, and they also fix typos and such.
And there's also Feedbooks.

Creative Commons is CC. CCO is Catholic Christian Outreach.

Just to be sure that you haven't missed it. Here at MR there is very large collection of public domain books you may start here. Those I have looked at are very nicely formatted.

There are not many Catholic Christian Outreach books in the MR library. There may be a few such as some version of the Bible.

The questioner used CC0 with a zero, not CCO with an O.

Quite correct. And if Jon is not familiar with "No Rights Reserved" (CC0), then perhaps he should read up on it, instead of choosing to post ignorant "corrections".

A typical CC license is about choosing a range of permissions while retaining copyright. CC0 is about opting out of all of the exclusive rights automatically granted to creators.

Might as well release it as Public Domain if you give up all rights.

Also even CC is simply a variation of Copyright as a template for the hard of thinking and often isn't what people think. The rights holder has always been able to set any legal conditions and give up any rights.

Disagree with the US Corporate driven extension of rights? Just put in copyright "This work enters the Public Domain <NN> years after the author's death", or "This work enters the Public Domain in 20<nn>"
As long as it's less or equal to current term it's perfectly legal.

And CC0 (C-C-zero) is a Creative Commons license that waives all rights. Similar in many ways to copyleft.
