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. al-anon.org/pdf/P35.pdf

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.
