Can I upload a in-depth close analysis of Othello as a premium resource?

    As the question says can I upload an indepth close anaylsis of the text Othello as a paid resource? Or would this have issues with copyright. Not too clear on the rules of copyright about after an author dies and all of that. If someone could give me any information I would be very grateful!

    It depends which text you use and how much of it you quote. Shakespeare's original text is well out of copyright... :)

    There are fair use exemptions to copyright for critical analysis etc, but if you want to be really sure, check the copyright of the text you are using.

    His original words won't be subject to copyright... but it might be tricky to find those :D

    How would I check that? I just got the text and copied it from a random website?

    Yes definitely. Must be an alternative?
