AA’s Intellectual Property Administrator response:

“We have no objection to your O.A. meeting reprinting brief excerpts from the Big Book for use in its meetings. Of course, we would ask that this material not be adapted, that is, this material should be ‘read (or reprinted) directly from the actual Big Book.’”

“We would prefer that A.A. material is not photocopied or retyped, particularly large segments of A.A. material.”
