Commercial Use of Secretary of State Publications

Some publications have a commercial use fee. Check with the office if you intend on using a publication for a commercial purpose. A "commercial purpose" is the use of all or part of a public record for the purpose of sale or resale; including but not limited to photographs or mailing lists, to earn money. “Commercial purpose” does not mean the use of a public record as evidence or as research for evidence in an action in a judicial or quasi-judicial body of this state or a political subdivision of this state.
