E,

Your guess is right.  It's copyrighted dramatic works that Bookshare can't
distribute.  Shaw's plays, like Shakespeare's,  must be public domain now if
they are on Bookshare.

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] George Bernard Shaw books 

As for G. B. Shaw, some of his plays seem to be on bookshare.

They include
Androcles and the Lion
Arms and the Man
Caesar and Cleopatra
Candida
Captain Brassbound's Conversion
Heartbreak House
Major Barbara
Man and Superman
Mrs. Warren's Profession
I thought plays were prohibited acceptance.  Are these all right because 
they are past a certain age?
