Respected Maharajas, Prabhus, and Didis, Please accept our dandavat pranama. All glories to Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga. All glories to Sri Sri Radhavinoda-bihariji.

We want to give an update to all those devotees who are serving Srila Gurudeva's publications, websites and promotional materials:
For those of you who missed the copyright information meetings in New Vraja and Govardhana, we plan to meet again in Navadvipa during the parikrama. A tentative date is set for the afternoon Tuesday February 27. Look for posted confirmation of the time and place, and come with any questions, concerns or ideas.

The GVP Image Archive will be functional beginning Gaura-purnima. This is an online resource for images that Gaudiya Vedanta Publications has permission to use. Any devotees who commit to following the copyright clearance process will be issued passwords to access the thousands of images in the Archive. For those devotees who do not attend the meeting in Navadvipa, an email with the details will be sent after Gaura-purnima.

Please help us collect more images for Srila Gurudeva's publications, websites and promotional materials. If you or other devotees in your local sanga have personal photographs or art you wish to submit to the archive, please complete the attached Submissions and Agreements form and burn the images onto a CD. The completed forms and CDs can be submitted to Anita dasi in person at Gaura-mandala Parikrama or other arrangements made by email ().

If you are not publishing under the GVP logo, it is appropriate to get written permission from Srila Gurudeva for each translation. Please email your request, including the title of work to be translated, the logo it will be published under, and corresponding street address to Brajanatha prabhu ().

If you have any questions, comments or suggestions about these points or any issue regarding copyrights, please feel free to contact any of us.

Your Servants,
