Can I use a page in the Forum for a meeting?

I just was reading the new May bulletin and it states here, and maybe it's me being confused? It says "DID YOU KNOW: Only small excerpts of CAL may be used at meetings, with permission of the WSO? Can get get a explanation of this as i have been in Alanon since 1992 and never knew i needed "permission" and only a small verbiage could be used? Thanks! Blessings, Steve

Steven, welcome to MIP.

When I read that particular passage of the "Why Conference Approved Literature" pamphlet, it states,

"All Al-Anon materials are copyrighted and protected against use by anyone else.
In order to protect our copyrights, we do not allow
use of any part of Al-Anon literature without written
permission, which is given only for brief excerpts.
Such use is always credited to Al-Anon Family
Group Headquarters, Inc. in acknowledgement of
our copyrights."

Here is the link to that pamphlet.

If you notice it states that the literature is copyrighted and protected against use by anyone
other than Al-Anon members.

Hope I have helped.
