Hi. I'm new to the forum. 

I'm reading a book from here called 

Foster, Rupert C. - Studies in the Life of Christ

Just want to ask if i can be sure there are no copyright issues with this book.

I like the book, although i dont agree with everything. 

Just want to make sure its not copyrighted.

Thanks beforehand.

The people who run the site (as well as the members who create the modules) are very careful about copyright issues, but even so some modules have been withdrawn when a challenge was issued, and they stayed unavailable until the issue was settled. 

 

As I understand it (from having read many discussions about copyright in these forums) If you have a book/what ever that is under copyright, and make a module (or other e-copy) for your own usage (it is seen as the equivalent of making a backup copy of a piece of music or file) it is allowable, but if you distribute it it violates the copyright.   (I am certain that someone who is more familiar with the exact wording of the law will correct me if I am wrong).


Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, (Jeremiah 9:23-24a)
 

"Defenders of the faith are inclined to be bitter until they learn to walk in the light of the Lord. When you have learned to walk in the light of the Lord, bitterness and contention are impossible." --Oswald Chambers, in Biblical Psychology from The Quotable Oswald Chambers.

Hi Tim,

I think you hit the proverbial nail right dead center on the head. I don't think I could have both said better and explained it better.

 

Blessings,

Thanks for your replies.

Is the uploader of the book still active on here?

Hello,

 

Looking back at my notes on this project: The original publication date was between 1923-1963. The copyright was not renewed and the renewal exemption didn't apply. Therefore, it's public domain.
