Q&A: Our Creative Commons Copyright
Considering the Creative Commons Copyright notice attached to all articles and news coming out of NobleDead.org, one question has come up several times. The link to the CCC site on the web is enough for most, but some people are still a little confused about what the can / cannot do…
Q: Can I copy / share one of your news items / articles on my own page/site?
A: Yes you can; read the Creative Commons explanation by following its link at the end of any article coming out of NobleDead.org. Or, as a simple starting point…
You can republish one of our articles so long as…
- it is presented in its entirety (with one exception),
- is unchanged in any way, and
- you provide linked attribution back to its original source… meaning NobleDead.org.
NOTE: If you share via an auto-share function in a social or blog system that creates an article summary and a link, that’s acceptable, too, so long as content of the summary is not altered and the link leads back to NobleDead.org or one of its social system pages.
Our main concern is that news releases serve as intended to help inform people about our work (and our site); and that these are never used improperly or purely for “boxed” self-promotion by other sites. Again, for further details, see the CC link (like at the bottom of this article) or just ask us and our small staff via our contact page. We don’t bite [pun-intended].
