Moxy, I'll have to stay by my original statement; it's just silly for the org to be spouting off about copyright.
You said that copyright has nothing to do with money. It seems to me to have everything to do with money, primarily. Not only money, but mostly.
Here are some more specifics on the type of use we are talking about (I maintain that it all falls easily under "fair use"):
the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include -
(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether
such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit
(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;
(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in
relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and
(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or
value of the copyrighted work. The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.
As a not for profit, the "effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the work", is nil. (although we who post their words hope the sum efect is huge ) As a religious organization, with bookmaking to no end, any and all re-use of their words is going to be for the purpose of, "criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research".
So for them to say...
“…Related to this, Christian should avoid putting onto, or downloading
from, electronic bulletin board material that is copyrighted (as are the
Society’s publications) and that is being copied without legal permission
from the owners .”
...is just silly.
Of course, if you notice, they carefully did not say that doing so was a violation of copyright. They just said, "christians should avoid doing it".
