Foundation for Inner Peace
General Copyright Policy
In 1975, Dr. Helen Schucman, the Scribe of A Course in Miracles (ACIM), assigned the manuscript of the Course to the Foundation for Inner Peace for publication. At that time, upon the insistence of the Voice which had authored the Course and identified itself as Jesus, she told the Foundation to copyright the Course. Since then, all editions of A Course in Miracles and all films, audio recordings, and videos, eBooks, apps and any other electronic media published by the Foundation for Inner Peace are works that enjoy copyright protection with or without registration around the world.
