I’ve mentioned that Logos 4 PBB is here! Now it’s time to consider StillTruth’s role in distributing them. At the moment I don’t know what it will end up being, but I know there will be one. But I’m still a little uncertain what that role will fully entail.
Let’s start with an update posted by Bob Pritchett the CEO of Logos Bible Software:
I just want to give a quick “heads up” about the PBB distribution terms. While you’ll be able to build whatever you want with PBB, distribution will be supported via our Logos online systems. (Both from your personal page as well as from a central bookstore.)
The bookstore will make it easy to share content with others, and will offer the same cloud-based downloading, syncing, multi-computer use, etc. that Logos-created books support.
For this reason, though, Logos is going to have some content restrictions on the bookstore — we aren’t looking to create an editing tool, for example, that lets people create lower-quality and lower-price versions of public domain content we sell in high-quality editions, and then use our systems, servers, etc. to distribute them.
The policies and procedures aren’t done, and we’re still thinking through all the issues. But I want to point out early-on that the goal of PBB is to support “personal” use. This means you can do whatever you want for yourself, but if you want to use our systems to share/distribute the content, we’ll be offering support for sharing your “personal” content, not for going into competition with Logos on public domain (or licensed non-PD) content.
