Here at the Napoleon Bonaparte Wiki, we are writing articles on Napoleon I and his life. Sometimes, it is very hard to find a good place to start while writing an article. That's where public domain text comes in.
Public domain means the status of a literary work or an invention whose copyright or patent has expired or that never had such protection. This means that you can cut, paste, and modify text from a public domain literary work without the worry of plagiarism. However, you must add the original source you got the text from.
