I'm working on a blog post about Ezekiel 43-44, part of his longer vision (40-48) about the ideal Israelite temple. I found a very nice picture/diagram of Ezekiel's temple in the Faithlife Studybible Infographics. 

Can I use that image on the web, provided it has the proper attribution/linking? I'm a little unclear about Faithlife and copyright.

This is an EXCELLENT question.  I don't have an answer, but am looking forward to hearing it.

Bump.

Anyone? Bueller?

I'm too lazy today to find the actual statement but essentially you are encouraged to use them in presentations etc. but you can't use them for commercial gain.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

We need to write up a formal answer for this that handles all the example cases.

For now, we're definitely okay with you using our material in teaching, preaching and presentations. We aren't okay with you 're-publishing it' without permission, or re-selling it. A blog post is a bit weird, because it's effectively a public (and very re-usable) sharing of the media. I'd prefer if you used a slightly scaled down version in your blog post; you can link to a full-res version hosted at http://bible.faithlife.com, or the one you get if you use Visual Copy from inside the app (which is probably down now, but should be back up soon).

We'll write up and publish more detailed instructions soon -- if this isn't enough, do what you need to do for now. In general our interest is in sharing and re-use, as long as we get attribution (and ideally a link back).

Thanks!

Many thanks for the guidance.

I wonder, I was thinking of publishing my audio sermons on youtube and using the powerpoint slides as the video component. I am guessing from your statement that this would count as a presentation and thus be OK?

I am starting a blog and hoping to use some Faithlife media on my posts. Sounds like if I use the Visual Copy feature and provide attribution (including a link-back), I should be good, correct? Thank you for this incredible resource! God bless you!

Any progress on getting these instructions written up and posted somewhere?

Just upgraded to 6 for the improved copy capability. Want to use the process to share media to a closed Facebook group (Bible study small group) as teaser for the week's lesson. Can I legally do this?

That's pretty straightforward.
