Restricted Permissions For Copying HDM CD Files

 


INTRODUCTION

HDM claims copyright both on the HDM CD in total and on each HDM Text File separately -- the CD Copyright year being taken from the earliest file-creation dates discovered among our CD files, several of which were created in the Fall of 1993 -- and the Copyright date of each file, in most cases, being the year in which the file was discovered to have been created.

Further, HDM herewith announces that its Copyright Prohibitions and Restrictions are applicable to every HDM CD published to date and applicable as well on those CDs that shall be published from this date by HDM. It is a matter of claiming the duplication and publication rights to our CDs -- rights which we have legally and automatically had since the first CD was produced, but which have not heretofore been stated totally, nor under a printed Copyright claim. Those who doubt the accuracy of these statements can check for themselves the Copyright Laws posted by the US Library of Congress on their Web Site. All of the files at http://wesley.nnu.edu/wesleyctr/ are used by permission of HDM.

Our prohibitions and restrictions are aimed at keeping HDM CD files away from those digital publishers and retailers who are all too willing to "make a mint" from our hard work. Thank You, for keeping your conscience clear in the matter by not violating our Copyright, and Thank You also for your support of HDM in the creation and publication of Wesleyan/Holiness digital publications. -- Duane & Dorothea Maxey, and Connie Humphrey, -- Holiness Data Ministry

NONE OF THE HDM CD FILES, IN PART OR IN WHOLE, MAY BE PLACED ON THE INTERNET, OR WHERE SUCH MAY BE ACCESSED FROM THE INTERNET, FOR DOWNLOADING, nor may any of such be made available using any electronic medium other than the Internet, except for those explicitly authorized for online viewing at http://wesley.nnu.edu/wesleyctr/.

NONE OF THE HDM CD FILES, IN PART OR IN WHOLE, MAY BE PLACED ON THE INTERNET, OR WHERE SUCH MAY BE ACCESSED FROM THE INTERNET, FOR READING without the knowledge and express, written permission of Holiness Data Ministry.



YOU MAY NOT, IN PART OR IN WHOLE, USE OUR FILES TO CREATE, OR TO ASSIST IN THE CREATION OF, A DIGITAL PUBLICATON (OR PART THEREOF) IN ANY DIGITAL FORMAT without the knowledge and express, written permission of Holiness Data Ministry.


YOU MAY NOT SHARE A PRIVATE, BACK-UP COPY OF THESE FILES WITH ANOTHER.


YOU MAY NOT COPY AND SHARE WITH OTHERS THE WESLEY CENTER HTML FILES without the express, written permission of Dr. George Lyons and the NNU Wesley Center. The files in the Wesley Center Folder of the HDM CD are, in fact, the entire NNU Wesley Center CD, and under their copyright.

RESTRICTED PERMISSIONS FOR COPYING HDM CD FILES

YOU MAY FREELY MAKE GENEROUS EXCERPTS from the HDM CD files and drop them into your own compositions. It is not required that you credit the HDM CD as your primary source.

YOU MAY COPY OUR DIGITAL TEXT FILES:

1. Provided that such copies are for private use.

2. Provided that such copies are shared only with private individuals via diskette(s) or via email and are for the private use of those with whom you share them.

3. Provided that such copies include the HDM Copyright statement at the top of each file copied to diskette(s) or sent via email, and provided that such copies are shared in limited numbers.**

**Please do not share our digital text files with others en masse -- so as to give them, in effect, all of our CD text files or a huge portion thereof. If you know someone who wants our text files for personal use, but who cannot afford to send HDM any or all of the suggested offering for our CD, instead of supplying them with massive numbers of our files via diskettes and/or email, please inform us and we will try to make our CD available to them in a way they can afford.

4. Provided that you do not knowingly (either directly or indirectly) allow any of such copies to be made available to any other digital publisher or to any retailer of any sort.

YOU MAY PRINT-OUT OUR DIGITAL TEXT FILES:1. Provided such print-outs are for private use, (***See below) or in limited number for use in your labors for the Lord.

2. Provided that you do not print-out any text file from a publication that is currently copyrighted -- i.e., a currently copyrighted publication that we obtained permission to publish digitally, but which we may not allow our users to duplicate either digitally or in print. If in doubt, please contact us.

***Some exceptions may be made regarding the "for private use" limitation in point 1 above. If you wish to publish in paper print, a portion of one of our files, an entire file, or a group of our files -- as a pamphlet, booklet, or book, etc. -- please contact HDM for our approval before doing so.

ABOUT OTHER FILES ON THE HDM CD:

1. JPG GRAPHICS -- You have our permission to copy the JPG graphics digitally, to print them on paper, and to share them with other private individuals, but not with other digital publishers or retailers of any sort.

2. MIDI FILES -- You have our permission to copy them to your Hard Drive, and we have no objection to your sharing them with others via email or diskette, but you must not make them available to any other digital publisher or to any retailer of any sort.

3. THE *.RTF FILES -- So far as I know, these are all in the public domain. We do not own them and have no control over what you do with them. You may not copy our CD, and give or sell it to another for the purpose of making the *.RTF files on it available to another party, but you have our permission to copy and share those files freely, so long as it does not violate any restriction by the author of those files.

4. THE HTML FILES -- Except for personal use, you may not copy the HTML files in the Weslyctr Folder of the HDM CD. These HTML files, along with the HMView files, constitute the entire NNU Wesley Center CD, and are under their copyright. Except for personal use, no copies may be made of any of these files without the express, written permission of Dr. George Lyons and the NNU Wesley Center.

5. THE PROGRAM FILES -- most of which are in the Programs Folder -- Please abide by the restrictions placed on those files by their authors.
