Before I try to guess or piece together the differences, could someone from FL please list the exact differences between what's in the Verbum 9 USA and what's in the Verbum 9 International packages, including pricing differences where relevant?

Thank you!

I have Verbum international Portfolio but when I look at Verbum Portfolio the cost of $8.22 is greyed out (not available to purchase in my region) and the only resource listed that is new to me is the $89.99 "The Liturgy of the Hours: According to the Roman Rite (4 vols.) *"

The Liturgy of the Hours 4 volume and the ESV-CE are the only two "US only" resources. Everything else is the same.

Any chance of the US edition becoming a Canada-US edition at some point? I recall that some resources have been licensed that way, e.g., the USCCB's edition of the CCC.

Given that it seems to now be possible for Canadians to order the ESV-CE and pre-order the LotH, is it also possible for the USA Verbum Standard base packages to become at least one country less exclusive? Or are you waiting to work out more rights-related issues first?

I should have been more clear about "US Only."

The ESV-CE is available in most of the world, and we are working on acquiring what rights are outstanding. However, for the sake of US vs International base packages, it would have required a third edition of the software to make it available where it is allowed.  As such, I opted to make it available for stand-alone purchase as widely as possible, but only include it in the US Base Packages.

The LOTH is a bit trickier. As I understand it, we currently only have rights for the LOTH in the U.S. I will have to look into what is happening with the open ability to pre-order.

I understand. In your position, I would have probably made the same decision for the same reasons.

In my actual position, my decision is not to buy the undiscounted ESVCE. I hope you understand. Smile

Now that you seem to have the rights to sell LOTH in "North America" rather than just the USA, might it be possible to let us Canadians acquire LOTH and the ESVCE in Verbum 9 base packages?

If I understand correctly, that wouldn't require creating a third collection of packages--just changing the geographic availability of the two Verbum 9 (Standard) lines that already exist and tweaking some marketing language.
