  1. I love this idea. Thanks for sharing it. I have a curriculum that I wrote that I have sold hard copy and that the UUA sells now, but that I have been wanting to get out into the world far beyond my own time…this may be the way.

  2. I guess we can talk about that, there was a case in the news recently. Better still, we could talk about sermons under CC license explicitly for translation into other languages. This is already happening for Spanish in a few pages and usually with the oral consent of the minister, but it would be good to make it a established practice with sermons available on the Web.
