Can we make copies of articles that we find on ChurchLawAndTax.com for other people, such as clients, staff members, friends, or colleagues?
No, that is a violation of copyright law. You can make one copy for your own personal use. If you want to make more than one copy, you must obtain advance permission from the copyright owner.
Are there any materials on the ChurchLawAndTax.com site that we can make copies of without violating copyright law or getting advance permission?
Yes, but restrictions apply. Active subscribers can make copies of the email newsletter content from both the Church Law & Tax Update and the Church Finance Update for internal office use.
What does "internal office use" mean?
It means that you can make copies for staff members who all work at the same location in the same building. You cannot make copies for any other individual, client, group, congregation, or ministry.
We have an Annual Subscription which authorizes the sharing of our Login and Password with any member of our paid staff. Doesn't that permit us to make copies of materials that are available on ChurchLawAndTax.com if we only use them for our paid staff members?
No, there is a bit of a distinction. Your Annual Subscription provides access to all the members of your office so that they can individually go online and make their own personal copy, but it does not provide you the right to make copies. You must obtain advance permission from the copyright owner to make copies.
Can we email articles that we find on the site to someone else, such as our staff members, clients, colleagues, or to a friend?
No, that is a violation of the terms of agreement and copyright law. You must obtain advance permission from the copyright owner.
Can we print articles from ChurchLawAndTax.com in our newsletter or other publications?
No, that is a violation of copyright law. You must obtain advance permission from the copyright owner.
We are a professional office and have purchased an Annual Subscription. With whom can we share the password?
Subscription privileges for law offices, CPA firms, professional organizations, and businesses are limited strictly to paid employees who work together in a single building. The following example clarifies the appropriate use of the subscription privileges.
Example 1. A law office purchases an Annual Subscription. An attorney in the office has a church client. The attorney cannot share access to the website with the client. The client must obtain its own subscription account. All attorneys and paid employees in the firm who work in the same building may access the site.
