NCCG is generous granting permission to godly websites and publishers to use NCCG-copyrighted material provided they do so to honour and bring glory to our Father in Heaven, Yahweh-Elohim, and provided the conditions listed below are followed.
If this caption appears on your website, the URL where the article is located on this website must be an active, clickable, functioning link that leads to the original article.
These copyright rules are not binding on materials copyrighted by other authors not of NCCG that appear on this site - to reproduce these particular non-NCCG materials, please consult the authors concerned.
Materials written by former members of NCCG and copyrighted by NCCG whilst they were members of NCCG or its precursor or successor organisation(s) remain the copyright of NCCG though the original authors are by default granted the right to reproduce these materials for their own use provided they do not modify them.
A. Why Do We Copyright Our Materials?
(a) To prevent people from modifying articles and putting them out as though we are the authors of the mutilated text, thus misrepresenting us and the Elohim who inspired them;
(b) To prevent cults or enemies of the Gospel from using our materials, in part or in whole, to support their own positions after making modifications, or by making "selective extracts" taken out of context, thus giving a false impression of what we are saying;
(c) To prevent people from using our materials for commercial gain;
(d) So that we may be accoutantable for our stewardship before Yahweh, making sure that pearls are not being cast before swine, etc.. (see FAQ).
B. Rules for Using NCCG-Copyrighted material
You may reproduce, without charge or obtaining formal permission, extracts up to 500 words per article on a personal website or hardcopy publication provided you are not hostile to this ministry or its members and provided you include the following information at the end of the material cited or in a properly linked footnote or endnote that is clearly legible:
If you wish to cite a longer extract or the whole article, then please contact us directly for permission.
Some of the subsites of nccg.org may contain tighter restrictions and forbid any kind of off-site storage or reproduction. The '500 word default' only applies to materials without such restrictions.
Otherwise none of the material on this site may be reproduced, stored in a retrieval system, or transmitted in any form by any means, electronic, mechanical, photocopying, recording or otherwise.
Any and all previous copyright notices issued by NCCG or its precursor organisations are superceded by the most recent statement on this page as far as materials on this site are concerned.
NCCG has successfully pursued and/or prosecuted - and will continue to pursue and/or prosecute - all flagrant abuses of its copyright privileges.
