The Fellowship Votes To Become A Publisher
In a quick response to the recent court decision, the Fellowship, a fraternal organization, recently voted to print their own version of The URANTIA Book, which they claim "will be a significant improvement over all currently available printings."
Historically a social group, this organization pursued a similar path of competitive publishing in 1996 following a previous copyright infringement lawsuit. In that court case, the Fellowship supported efforts to nullify the copyright in The URANTIA Book. The district court ruled against URANTIA Foundation, but the appellate court subsequently overturned the ruling in 1997. The Fellowship was obligated to withdraw its book from the market.
Based on past experience, we had hoped that other would-be publishers would await the decision of the appellate court before acting.
