Here’s the texts which are all clearly public domain:
1) Alice in Wonderland (and parts of it)
2) Parts of Nathaniel Hawthorne by Ethan Brand
3) John F. Kennedy’s “ask not” speech.
4) The Barnsley Manifesto
5) UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights
6) The Bible in Hebrew

The following are Adobe licensed and donated, so they are okay:
1) Text from the Japanese OpenType guide.

did not go through all the text, but I’m sure Adobe picked open domain text for all the
tests.(i.e. I noticed the Hebrew text is text from the bible. You can’t get more open domain
then that…);-)
