Resolutions as Public Witness (81288-CO-¶510.2)

Add ¶510.2c as follows:
  
c) All United Methodist boards, agencies, congregations, and other entities shall be granted copyright permission to publish and disseminate, whether in print or electronic format, any and all official resolutions of the General Conference as published in the Book of Resolutions.

Rationale

The general public currently has little awareness of or access to the public witness found in our Book of Resolutions. To proclaim these resolutions as a public witness to our faith to as many persons as possible, United Methodists need copyright permission to disseminate these materials freely.
