Everything is always copyrighted. Copyright is compulsory. In any case, I
think that the only way you could avoid infringing his copyright would be
to edit your own collection, using his only as a source for quotations. I
don't think that modifying the format qualifies.

Much of copyright law is dumb. We still have to deal with it.
