Lehigh Presbytery’s subscription to The Parish Paper gives Lehigh Presbytery copyright permission to provide copies to our staff and the congregations within our constituency in any or all of the following ways: E-mail, U.S. Mail, enclosing or reprinting in our newsletter, distribution at our meetings or training events, and posting on our website.
It also provides permission for each congregation within our constituency to (a) photocopy or electronically distribute for local use as many copies as its needs, (b) post them on their website, and (c) quote sentences and paragraphs.
The congregation does NOT have permission (a) to delete the copyright notice on page 2; (b) to re-write, paraphrase, or change the wording of sentences and paragraphs; or (c) to give ANY THIRD PARTY—other than your staff and constituents—permission to photocopy or reprint (in any quantity, no matter how small, whether for free distribution or for sale).
If you mail photocopies with your newsletter or other mailings—using your U.S. Post Office Nonprofit Mailing Permit—most local Post Offices require that every item carry your organization’s name and address. Above The Parish Paper masthead, type your congregation’s name, address, and “Photocopied by Permission.”
