BrailleAudio Materials Format and File Sharing Policy

Unless otherwise stated, materials on, or distributed by BrailleAudio, are produced and distributed under the terms of U.S. Public Law 104-197 Section 316. In compliance wwith this law, materials produced subject to this law are provided and distributed in specialized formats exclusively for use by persons who are blind, or by persons with other physical disabilities which prevent them from reading printed material in a conventional manner.

To guard against violation of copyright law, no member of BrailleAudio may share, sell, transfer, or otherwise provide copies of files available from BrailleAudio to any other person or entity for any purpose whatsoever. An exception exists for BrailleAudio staff and volunteers who may find it necessary to transfer files between one another to complete assigned tasks. Even staff and volunteers of BrailleAudio, Spoken Word Ministries, Inc., or any associated entities thereof, may not provide BrailleAudio files to other persons or entities without specific approval in writing from Spoken Word Ministries, Inc., and/or from BrailleAudio staff or volunteers with the authority to approve file sharing requests.

If a member of BrailleAudio is deemed to have violated the above policy, his/her membership may be suspended for a time, or permanently revoked. BrailleAudio, Spoken Word Ministries, Inc., or any associated entities thereof, is responsible for policy enforcement, and all decisions are final and binding on all parties.

BrailleAudio understands the frustration of having friends who want access to material who cannot otherwise obtain it, and the desire to help such friends with the best of intentions, but we nevertheless require each and every member of BrailleAudio to strictly adhere to the above policy.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
