All content included on our Sites, including any materials, documents, text, designs, graphics, logos, images, audio and video (“Content”) is the property of Coptic Media and suppliers, and is protected by United States and international copyright laws. The compilation and “look and feel” of all Content on our Sites is the exclusive property of Coptic Media and also protected by United States and international copyright laws.

We may at any time revise these Terms and Conditions by updating this page. By using our Sites, you agree to be bound by any such revisions and should therefore periodically visit this page to determine the then current terms and conditions to which you are bound. Certain provisions of these Terms and Conditions may be superseded by other legal notices or terms located on parts of our Sites.
5. You Agree to Indemnify Us for Using Our Sites
You hereby jointly and severally agree to indemnify, defend and hold us and our subsidiaries and affiliates, and any of our or their respective officers, directors, owners, agents, employees, information providers, licensors and licensees (collectively, the “Indemnified Parties”) harmless from and against any and all liability and costs, including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by the Indemnified Parties in connection with any claim arising out of your use of our Sites or any breach by you of these Terms and Conditions, or the purchase by you of securities, including any liabilities associated with a violation of federal or state securities laws. If the indemnity provided in this paragraph is not available or is insufficient to hold harmless the Indemnified Parties for any reason, you agree to contribute to the aggregate losses, claims and liabilities to which the Indemnified Parties may be subject in such proportion as appropriate to reflect the relative fault by you and the Indemnified Parties with respect to the activity giving rise to the indemnity claim. You will cooperate as fully as reasonably required in the defense of any claim. We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and you will not in any event settle any such matter without our written consent.
6. Holy Bible Copyrights
We publish the Holy Bible in good faith claiming the right of fair use for non-profit and educational purposes and public benefit. Most, if not all, of the versions of the Bible in our site are in the Public Domain but, in case of any discrepancies, we state the following:
We acknowledge that the author of the Bible is God - His rights are forever protected. The translations [of most versions found on this site] have been done many years ago, therefore in most cases no longer covered by copyrights. In most countries copyrights last for a limited time. In any case, with all due respect, Bible translations should never be copyrighted as that contravenes the desire of the 'Author' - ["Freely ye have receive, freely give"; " He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things". ]
7. Copyrights Violation
It is not our intention to violate any copyrights. Thus, any person or entity who has claims over any of material presented on our website, is invited to produce evidence in support of their claim. Such evidence shall be analyzed to verify the validity of such claim. Most, if not all, Bible versions present in our site have been translated many years ago by dedicated missionaries, who gave their life and work for the good of the World in service and unselfish dedication to the Lord Jesus Christ - many were sponsored and supported by public generosity and gifts from Christians - not by the Bible societies or companies who are today claiming copyrights. It is possible and not uncommon in this time and age, that unprincipled and dishonest people, including, in very rare cases, some Bible Societies, would try to manipulate copyrights in order to monopolize Bible texts for their own profit and benefit. This we do not accept and such behavior is object of the most vehement protest and charged accordingly. Claiming copyrights over Biblical texts is illegal in such a case.
