ERROR 400: BAD REQUEST

You’ve made a bad request, you naughty minx, you.

Apparently something went horribly awry with the request that was sent through to the server. And since our server is persnickity, it staged a protest and refused to be involved any further. We’re trying to get it to come out of the bathroom, but you really made it mad.

Hopefully the links above or in the sidebar will help you get back on the right track. If you feel like this error is something that needs to be attended to by adults, please send us a message through our Contact Page.

Walk in light and peace.

ERROR 404: FILE NOT FOUND

Sorry, friend. We couldn’t find what you’re looking for. It’s possible that it’s moved or has ceased to exist entirely (which happens from time to time in the Universe). Hopefully the links above or in the sidebar can help you get back on the right track.

Walk in light and peace.

PayPal vs Credit Cards

If you’re familiar with PayPal, you no doubt know that it’s an excellent way to protect your personal information. That’s why we use it exclusively at Malleus Maleficarum Online for our credit card processing. You don’t have to have a PayPal account to purchase products from us, however. While we highly recommend the PayPal service for all of your online purchases, you can use the service to pay for items using the credit card or debit card of your choice. What PayPal does is protect your credit card information from prying eyes (and disreputable vendors).

When you purchase an item from Malleus Maleficarum Online and pay for your item through our PayPal links, we never receive your credit card information. Your credit card number will not remain in our records for years to come, as it would with other vendors. We pride ourselves on providing that safest possible experiences for our customers. Using PayPal exclusively for our credit card transactions is just one of the many ways we protect our customers.

Of course, we also accept money orders and personal checks (your funds will have to clear before we ship your items), but for the safest possible credit card transactions online, we are proud to have PayPal as our partner. Once you try the service, we’re sure you’ll agree.

Approved Uses Of Our Work

If you wish to re-publish our HTML and PDF files, or you wish to use excerpts of Wicasta Lovelace’s introductions, please contact us to be added to our Sanctioned Users lists. This marks you as an official friend of the Malleus Maleficarum Online project, and you will receive full recognition for your consideration.

The text of the Malleus Maleficarum as translated by Rev. Montague Summers is in the public domain. As such, you do not need our permission to use the text itself. However, the HTML and PDF files which we created and posted to the web site are not in the public domain. These files are protected by U.S. copyright law.

Therefore, if you wish to extract the text of the Malleus from our HTML and PDF files for your own uses, that is an appropriate use of the material. Re-distributing our HTML and PDF files is not.

Copying our HTML and PDF files and posting them to another web site is no different from copying a song from your favorite band and placing it on a web site for distribution. It’s simply something you don’t have a right to, and the HTML and PDF files themselves are protected as original works under U.S. copyright law. In the view of American law, taking copyrighted works for your own use and re-distributing them opens you to legal prosecution as a known thief.

As well, the introductions that have been written in regard to the online publication of the Malleus Maleficarum are the original work of Wicasta Lovelace, and are copyrighted. Unauthorized use of these files is a violation of copyright law and may open you to legal action.

Within these parameters, feel free to use the actual text of the Malleus Maleficarum as you see fit. Our intention from the start was to promote the work itself so that it would not be forgotten. As such, we do not mind when people find their own uses for the text of the Malleus, because it serves our own ends. We do, however, object when unscrupulous users take our HTML and PDF files and post them to their own web sites without proper credit, often while claiming, or leaving the impression, that’s it is their own, original work.
