I am Eclecticology, a Canadian citizen and resident. I have been a Wikipedian since February 2002. I was involved in the launch of the original Wikisource. More recently, in May 2012, I became owner and manager of this site. I have thus assumed the responsibilities formerly exercised by User:Yann, to whom we owe the greatest gratitude for the financial and other support that he has given to this site for the last six years. Yann will continue to participate to an extent limited by his personal circumstances; his views and experience will continue to be appreciated.
I strongly believe in what motivated this site from the beginning: To host material that is permitted under Canadian copyright law, but not in the United States where Wikisource is hosted. The two most notable factors will be a term of copyright that lasts for 50 years after the death of the author, and a recognition of the rule of the shorter term. I will be developing some of my ideas below.
