Copyright Rules



PreacherWoman’s goal is to present God in excellence in all of our endeavors. Therefore, we deemed it necessary to develop guidelines for all blog entries. Other guidelines may become necessary as we grow, but following are the ones we will abide by for now.  


1. Song lyrics are copyrighted and need permission from the copyright holder. If PreacherWoman guest bloggers want to use copyrighted material,        THEY must acquire permission through one of the following means and present the written

    permission to PreacherWoman:



  • US Copyright Office

  • American Society of composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP)

  • Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI)


2. It is okay to use song titles, poem titles, artist names, band names, movie titles, etc.


3. PreacherWoman will not use copyrighted photographs, graphics, or other images. You may take your own picture and submit it         for consideration for your article.


4. PreacherWoman reserves the right to assign a picture to your article.


5. PreacherWoman abides by the “fair use” rule for its blog:


  • Copyrighted material may be used for the purpose of commentary, criticism, news reporting, teaching, and research.

  • A majority of your blog must be your own.

  • Give credit to the copyright holder.



  • Material is used for noncommercial purpose.


6. PreacherWoman abides by the “public domain” rule: one can use a public domain work without permission. A work may enter           public               domain in the following ways:


  • The copyright has expired because it was published before January 1923.

  • The copyright was not renewed. One may research the records at the Copyright Office.

  • The work is dedicated to the public domain by the copyright owner.
