Love to share ~ for world book and copyright day

Here's the Love to Share book prepared by my colleagues at the WCC worship resource office.

Churches, individuals, and Christian and ecumenical organizations are facing challenges when dealing with issues of copyright. Their struggle is intensified because of the larger context of globalization, where the rules of the market dominate and a culture of commodification is everywhere. While it is important to understand the logic of the market and the laws and regulations that apply to intellectual property, there are other issues that need to be taken into consideration.

This document aims to give some direction and guidelines in this task of searching for alternatives to the current situation. It is an effort to raise questions and clarify some possible solutions and alternatives.
