I have WBC module.
Actually I wish to make my private note.
However, as you know the module doesn't support "My Note."
Because of it, I want to copy some text (e.g. Gen 1:1-2:3) to Mellel and import the texts to PDF file.
Nevertheless, I am afraid whether it is a illegal copy.

Please give me a advice.

Once you own the WBC module, you can copy the text into any format you want for your own use. And even more, if you were using one chapter's worth of commentary in a pdf handout, supplemented with your own comments, in a classroom setting, (I'm not a lawyer but) that may be within fair use. But if this is just for your own use in your research, there's never any copyright issue.

Have you considered simply creating a User Notes file called "WBC Notes" and putting all your comments on the WBC commentary in there? Depending on your intended use, this may work for you.
