Except for “guest posts” written by others, I own the content on this Web site. It is copyrighted in my name. I want to achieve the appropriate balance between getting my content distributed while at the same time protecting my intellectual property (IP) rights. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
Without My Permission
You are free to do the following without my permission:
- Link to my site or any specific post on my site.
- Extract and re-post less than 200 words on any other site, provided you link back to my original post.
- Print off my posts and photocopy up to 50 copies for sharing within your company or other organisation.
- Print my posts in any non-commercial publication (e.g., company newsletter, etc.), provided you include this copyright notice: “© 2020, Katerina Thomas. All rights reserved. Originally published at www.katerinathomas.com.”
Not Without My Permission
You must have my specific written consent to do any of the following:
- Use the content for commercial purposes, including selling or licensing printed or digital versions of my content.
- Alter, transform, or build upon this work.
Re-posting and Translation Rights
I do not permit the re-posting of my posts in their entirety. This is because Google penalises websites for publishing duplicate content (Google often can’t tell which site hosts the original; therefore, I might be at risk getting penalised if I grant permission).
In addition, I don’t allow the translation and publication of my work in other languages. This is because I don’t have the resources to validate the quality of the work.
Guest bloggers retain the copyright to the posts they write and publish on this site. The above permission guidelines do not apply to guest blogger posts. If you are interested in re-posting or publishing content written by guest bloggers, you must contact them directly. I cannot serve as a broker, agent, or contact point.
If you have some use for my content that is not covered here, please email me.
