Some of the best maps are in resources such Carta's atlases. But these resources usually have some sort of statement at the start that none of the contents may be used in any form without express permission from the publisher.

So I was wondering if anyone has had any success in getting permission from publishers such as Carta to use their maps in preaching? Like simply showing (not sharing) a map in Proclaim or PowerPoint.

If there is no 'broadcasting' element to the presentation, then I would assume that it would fall under 'fair use' whether Proclaim, or Powerpoint were used of not.

Not much different from those machines that projected pages from a book on the wall really.

Actually, I am not sure that, even if an image were shown as an incidental slide in a broadcast sermon, that it would fall outwith the fair use criteria.

Nothing falls under "fair use" in countries that don't use "fair use", though....

Since you mentioned "fair use", I did just a little searching and learned that in the UK (my home) we have what's called "fair dealing". So that covers and answers my own question.

Thanks!

I take it you found the British Library page. Quite interesting in its own right.

Where are you based? I'm with the Church of Scotland in Corby Northamptonshire.

No, I actually got my info from Wikipedia, the source of all rock-solid information! Thanks for the link though. Definitely better.

If you are ever in the Newry/Warrenpoint/Rathriland/Crossmaglen area and come across a Firefighter don't mention my name or you'll likely get run out of town.

I used to look after Fire Stations there 1983-88.  :-)

I understand that there are even some old men in Belfast that remember me for the five years I spent there before going South.

So…if I were to record a short devo in YouTube and included a map on the video, would that be considered violation of copyrights?

I don't know! but YouTube is quite helpful in as much as it locksdown stuff as soon as somebody challenges the content of a video. Their automatic detectors are really quite sophisticated.

I guess that it would, like most things, depend on context.
