Dear all,

I was wondering if there was a copyright (in terms of intellectual property) on the translation of famous (or not so famous) quotations from the realms of literature - classics, religious, proverbs etc.

If so, is there any place to look up any such accepted translations, or would I have to perform a web search?

Thank you very much in advance for any suggestions,
