Copyright Information: When a family buys a physical (paper or CD) or digital (PDF, ebook or MP3) product published by Well-Trained Mind Press or Olive Branch Books Press, it acquires a royalty-free license to make multiple copies of the student materials for use within the household family. This family license does not convey the right to reproduce the materials for use by those outside the household, for resale, or for donation to other families or organizations.
Many families are now participating in group-learning situations, which gives rise to more copyright questions. This document provides the copyright information relevant to homeschoolers, pod-schoolers, micro-schoolers, co-ops, and schools--whether the instructor(s) meet(s) with the student(s) in person or online--and explains the licensing principles.

Making copies for resale or donation is a violation of United States law. According to the United States Copyright Office, “Copyright infringement occurs when a copyrighted work is reproduced, distributed, performed, publicly displayed, or made into a derivative work without the permission of the copyright owner.” For further information, see http://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-definitions.html.
