Beezone Lending Library
What is The Beezone Online Library?
The Beezone Online Library is a project of Beezone, a nonprofit educational foundation that makes available selected artistic and literary works under a system of voluntary, free online lending, under the fair use exclusion from copyright liability accorded to libraries and archives pursuant to 17 U.S.C. Sec. 107 and 17 U.S.C. Sec. 108.
Beezone’s library staffer (Ed Reither) is a member of the American Library Association and adheres to the ALA Code of Ethics. Beezone educates members as to the meaning of lawful fair use of copyrighted materials and imposes contractual and technical limitations on access to its materials. The Beezone’s Online Library contains materials that are protected by copyright, and by accessing this content, library MEMBERS are agreeing not to violate those copyrights by piratical behavior, i.e., using the materials for anything other than private study, scholarship or research.

Many of the books and periodicals in this wing of the Beezone Lending Library were written by Adi Da Samraj, who is the Founder and Spiritual Source of Adidam (also referred to as the Reality-Way of Adidam Ruchiradam and simply the Way of the Heart). Other publications in this wing were written or compiled by Adi Da’s devotees.
Adi Da was known by many names throughout His lifetime (1939-2008), and so you will see Him referred to as the author of these books under various names.
All the books that Adi Da Samraj wrote are the legal property of the Avataric Samrajya of Adidam Pty Ltd, as trustee for the Avataric Samrajya of Adidam (“ASA”).
The Beezone Lending Library practices “Digital Rights Management”, and members who borrow books from this lending library must understand and agree to borrow books in accordance with the following member guidelines:
I understand that, at any one time, the Beezone Lending Library may only digitally lend to its members as many copies of a book as it has a print copy of on its library shelves. (This is called the “owned to loaned” ratio, where a digital version of a book is lent to a reader just as a physical copy would be in a regular library).
I understand and agree that I may digitally borrow one book at a time for up two weeks from the Beezone Library.
I understand that the Beezone Library uses digital rights management to prevent copying and redistribution of the books in its lending library, and I agree that I will not attempt to unlawfully copy, download, modify or disseminate any book I borrow from the Beezone Lending Library.
The Beezone Lending Library acknowledges and respects that it is Adi Da Samraj’s Sacred and “Ever-Living” Intent that his written, spoken and artistic Works not be reproduced or modified without consulting the copyright owner ASA.
