Is there any way to work around or any possibility of progressing a change in the current restriction on Catechism of the Catholic Church access for those countries affected by the copyright restriction? I love my Logos and use it many times per day... but for a Roman Catholic, not having full access to the Catechism of the Catholic Church limits the richness of the possibilities enormously. 

Praying for a change :-/

Yes, if You buy the resource from someone, or buy a base-package from anyone who ordered the Logos 4 Catholic Foundations base-package more than a year ago when those copyright restrictions didn't apply yet. I did but in April 2013 I already gave away my L4 Catholic Foundations and L5 Verbum Basic base-packages to someone living on a disability income who has only $7 left each month. I had ordered Catholic Foundations on April 19. 2012 and I live in Sweden.

The license transfer fee $20 will apply.

There are currently no other options, and I haven't heard anything about any change coming up:

Try personally contacting your local Council of Bishops as they control the copyright in each section of the world. [may not have the correct title of the group to contact - but someone in your local Catholic Church should be able to help in contacting the correct organization]

We are working on a solution. Hopefully we will have permission for Canada soon. The rest of the world is more problematic, but we are actively working on solving the problem. This is a real priority for us.

Wow, I knew that it wasn't available in Canada, but yesterday when this thread was started I looked in my Library and found it was there. How did that happen if you haven't got the Canada permission yet? Mind you, I'm not complaining, just curious.

I have the Catechism since the day it was released. Back then, It was promised as free upgrade to all those who purchased a Logos 4 Catholic package (Scripture Study, Master's or Scholars if I remember correctly). There was no restriction as to where the customer lives. Then after a couple of months (or so) Logos found out that they made an error: the copyright holder in each country is different. In the US it is the US Council of Catholic Bishops with which the agreement was initially made. In Canada, it's the Canadian Council, etc. So the catechism was not anymore offered to those who live outside the US. All those who got the catechism prior to then got to keep it.
