To the best of my knowledge, everything presented in "the perimeter of poetry and words," unless clearly explained otherwise, is believed to be in the public domain or fall within the guidelines of fair use within the United States, where the material is hosted. Note that, due to the Millennium Copyright Act most copyrights since 1923 have been extended another quarter century, so you will not be seeing most 20th century works online for a long, long time.
If you are doing research or copying from this site, please do me the courtesy of referencing the perimeter’s URL:
