Terms & Conditions
Last updated: October 31, 2023
One of the top questions we are asked is whether people can use Pop the Cork Publishing’s poem translations at gatherings, just as one might play Christmas carols. Yes, of course! We encourage the use of the translated poems at holiday parties of all kinds (at schools and town festivals, too)! Our only requirement is that proper credit be given to Sally Veillette, the copyright owner.
On-line services, radio stations and television stations can also play the translated poems during the holiday season (with royalties if used for commercial purposes). Credit must be given to Sally Veillette, the copyright owner. Read our Copyright Policy for more details.
