Copyright and Sharing

Except where otherwise noted, content on this site is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution – Share Alike License.

What does this mean?

All the material on our site is copy written, with some rights reserved.* Except in those articles where the contrary is explicitly stated, we have a very liberal policy of sharing the intellectual property on our site. One right we do reserve is the right of “attribution.” If you use our materials, you must credit our site with a link, or, if the material is being used in print, with a reference to the source of the material (“source: Catholicism.org” would do nicely). Not to give attribution would be a violation of international copyright laws.

Another right we reserve is that your derived product (if you alter materials from our site) not only make attribution, but must also be licensed under a similar agreement. You may not use our material, alter it, and forbid others to use it. This is called “share alike.”

This license allows Wikipedia editors to use our material, since Wikipedia’s intellectual property policies are consistent with it. For more information, please see the Creative Commons site:

 

* What is said here does not apply to the merchandise in our store, including the Saint Augustine Institute of Catholic Studies multimedia products, which are all Copyright © all rights reserved.
