Al-Anon copyrighted literature is ONE of our primary sources of revenue within the fellowship, not only for the WSO but also for the literature distribution centers and GSOs throughout the world. By respecting our copyright, we are protecting our own Tradition Seven, “Every group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.” If we allowed others to copy and reprint our literature freely, we would be diverted from our primary purpose, ‘helping families and friends of alcoholics,” by becoming entangled in outside issues (legal disputes) which would be a violation of Tradition Ten.
