Jon, if you are taking snippets of information from a book and entering
it into your TMGW data set, then you are not in violation even if the
book were still copyrighted.

Even if you were to quote say a paragraph from a book, then you are not
in violation, as long as you cited the book.

A more complete scenario would help to guide you better.

IMHO, bob gillis
