Yes, it's only too easy to violate copyright! It also varies by country e.g. book copyright is for the life of the author plus 70 years in the US, but less here in New Zealand.
Another example is the King James Version of the Bible. The copyright is held by the Crown, and you can obtain permission from the Crown's patentee, Cambridge University Press (see http://www.cambridge.org/bibles/about/rights-and-permissions#8lx41TyjfkGPYLBu.97). Of course, Americans don't recognise the Crown, so I guess that's the source of the "fact" that the KJV isn't subject to copyright.
Most modern books are published internationally, in which case it would be polite to acknowledge that it is under copyright in the UK and other Commonwealth countries. Authors should note that the New King James Version is still under copyright - the copyright is held by Thomas Nelson, the publisher.
Recipes are interesting. Apparently, lists of ingredients are not copyright, but the way of describing how you make something may be. That makes logical sense. I can't just copy a Gordon Ramsey or Nigella Lawson recipe book and sell it (although I've heard there are scammers on Amazon doing exactly that).
I hadn't thought of the copyright on fonts. I guess I need to go and check those fonts I've downloaded! Thanks.
