I don't know whether to believe this. Atlas shrugged, the whole book, all 1053 pages, in pdf for free. I thought there was a copyright restriction.

Has the copyright expired?

According to one source the copyright expires in 35 yrs. 

All works published in the United States before 1923 are in the public domain. Works published after 1922, but before 1978 are protected for 95 years from the date of publication. If the work was created, but not published, before 1978, the copyright lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years.
It can be scanned, uploaded, and distributed via the internet or any other means with the permission of the publisher.
Laws are enforced only when harm is found and prosecuted only when charges are brought. The price of protecting yourself does not come free.
If someone violates the rights of a copyright owner, the owner is entitled to file a lawsuit in federal court asking the court to:
  1. issue orders to prevent further violations (restraining orders and injunctions)
  2. award money damages if appropriate, and.
  3. in some circumstances, award attorney fees.
