Copyright on Our Works
The purpose of Goretti Publications is to provide good Catholic literature at as low a cost as possible to as many as can use it. Naturally, therefore, the copyright which we enforce on our publications is extremely lenient. Nevertheless, we thought it prudent to spell out the terms as explicitly as possible, lest any confusion result in unintended strife. Goretti Publications will not consent to publish a work under any inconsistent copyright; to do so would run contrary to the end of our enterprise and our duty to spread the Faith as far as is within our power. The terms are, we believe, just and right. Any suggested modifications should, as always, be directed to our attention.
Please note that some of our works may be published under a different copyright; this is merely the default. However, none are published under what we consider an inconsistent copyright.
