According to the Satanic Church website, a 1967 LP had "excerpts from the as-yet-unpublished The Satanic Bible..." The "bible" itself was published in 1969. ( http://18.104.22.168/search?q=cache:IQ4MSus5E_kJ:www.churchofsatan.com/Pages/LaVeyBiography.html+%22Anton+Lavey%22&hl=en&gl=us&ct=clnk&cd=2&ie=UTF-8 ) Works copyrighted in the 1960s are covered by copyright law for the first 28 years, and now are automatically protected for another 67 years. (See "When U.S. Works Pass Into the Public Domain," University of North Carolina: http://www.unc.edu/~unclng/public-d.htm ) Therefore, the "bible" is protected under copyright law and is not in the public domain. No one may reprint it without permission from the copyright holder or his executive(s). Kriswrite RESEARCH STRATEGY: Search of Satanic Church website
