- You may duplicate and distribute only full-length versions of the messages.
- You may not edit the content in any way.
- You may not charge for the material (even to recoup your costs).
- You may link to messages at the Grace to You website, but you may not post them on your own website.
- If you copy material to a CD or DVD, please include the following information on the CD or DVD:

- You may not include personal or organizational contact information on any CDs or DVDs.

Grace to You and John MacArthur reserve all copyright protections under applicable law. We reserve the right to revoke or modify these permissions at any time.
Thank you for your cooperation in these matters, which will help us all spread the teaching of God’s Word to all the nations.
Since most of John MacArthur’s published materials are still in print and the publisher holds the publishing rights, we are unable to grant copy permission.
