I'm considering whether proclaim would be good for my congregation. We use Norwegian and I have the Norwegian Bibles I want to use in my account. Will it be possible to add Bible verses from these translations by other users?

Greetings Johan

The easies way to add a Norwegian Bible to Proclaim is to purchase a Logos edition I see that there are a few available and are inexpensive.

Doing it this way allows the 'On Screen Bible' and the 'Bible' facilities to word for your particular choice.

Otherwise the forward of most printed books often give indications of what they consider 'fair use'

eg Taken from the NIV


Up to five hundred (500) verses from the NIV Bible may be quoted in any form (written, visual, electronic or audio), without express written permission of the publisher, providing the verses quoted neither amount to a complete book of the Bible nor account for 25 per cent or more of the total text of the work in which they are quoted.

The appropriate notice of copyright must appear on the title or copyright page of the work as follows:

Thank you Mike,

I may have been unclear, but I already own these. What I want to know is whether other users in my church can add verses from these translations if I own them or, if we need to purchase them for every user who is adding verses to slides etc.

I think you should be ok as per Scott's post at https://community.logos.com/forums/p/102290/708221.aspx#708221 

Hopefully someone from Faithlife will be able to confirm this.

Referring to Graham's post - I don't think that we ever heard if they had definitely sorted out the licensing issues.

I guess your best bet is to get one of your other team members (who, foolishly,Wink is either not a Logos user or don't themselves own the bible on Logos) and see if it works for them. Don't forget to remind them to use the MORE button if the edition they are looking for doesn't immediately appear.

It it works for them I think we can say that it has all been sorted out.

It's still individually licensed at the moment, so only the purchaser can add verses from that Bible.  So either the purchaser would have to add them, or users would have to use the same login.
