The folks at Distant Shores Media have perhaps articulated it best. See their video here…

    Not being an author or publisher or distributor of these materials, my first thought is “WHY is this even an issue?” WHY on earth would we copyright salvation? Get evangelism and discipleship materials out to the folks who desperately need them. I am on board -where is my picket sign :)

    I am grateful for all the hard work DSM and others are doing to promote this. Given the proliferation of mobiles around the world – 75% of the world’s population has access to one (and that includes infants on up) – we know have the opportunity to put the gospel before the eyes & ears of the unreached. Most of them don’t have, or can’t afford to use, data services. Their phones are still media-capable, though. Yet many media providers (including Bible distributors) don’t allow their content to be shared offline because they can’t track its use. I’ve experienced, and heard others share stories, of people asking for things like a movie clip about Jesus, or for the Scriptures. What a shame to turn away people hungry to learn more about Jesus and the gospel b/c of restrictive policies on content sharing. Keep waving the open source banner, DSM.
