Casual English Bible maps for publication may be licensed here
Some maps are free to use
Bible study groups of 20 or fewer along with ministers preaching sermons that are not streamed or broadcast may, at no cost, use the Casual English Bible® maps copied from our website or from atlas PDFs and eBooks they purchased.
But if you want to publish the maps online in digital products, social media, and elsewhere, you’ll need permission and licensing.
How do I do get the licensed maps?
Use the form to send your request. And make sure to send the name of the map you would like to use. If you click the link, on the map’s page, the map name will pre-fill in the form. You can have the map with or without the text. Your choice.
What rights am I purchasing?
We will grant a license for one-time use, single edition/release/or post, for worldwide distribution for publication. Licensing fees vary according to usage.
How may I use the licensed maps?
You may use Casual English Bible® maps one time only to display on websites, social media videos, PowerPoint presentations, brochures and handouts. Reuse requires relicensing.
Why can’t I share the maps?
For the same reason you can’t walk into a store, pick up a Bible, walk out, and share it. Licensing fees and donor contributions help keep the Casual English Bible website freely available to Bible newcomers and people curious about Christianity.
Maps for book publishing and media outlets
If you would like to use any of these maps in books, magazines, television, and films, please contact Info@CasualEnglishBible.com for licensing details.
We will blend barely noticeable, tiny watermarks into the maps. We will strip out all the large watermarks, like those you see in maps on this Casual English Bible website. Watermarks help protect the copyright. Pirates can and do steal the maps and publish them, sell them, and give them away as trojan horses gut-loaded with malware.
Social media usage
Publishing copyrighted material on Pinterest, Facebook, and similar social media sites without permission is illegal, and is not within the realm of “fair use.” Most people don’t seem to know that, and they honestly think that sharing helps get the word out about the maps. We can debate the marketing aspect, but the law is clear. And the licensing helps us cover our costs.
