Permissions to Link or Post
Permission is granted for linking to the site, individual pages or articles within the Web site.
To request permission for posting an article on another Web site, contact the Publisher. Please state the reason for the request, and specify the URL of the Web site where the article will be posted. The name and phone number of someone to contact for further information (if needed) should also be included in the e-mail.
In most cases, permission will be granted for posting the text only, without images. When posting an article on another Web site, the article can't be truncated or altered in any way, except that type may be changed to conform to the style of the site or a PDF document. However, the relative sizes between headline/byline/body/copyright must remain proportional, and we generally request a link to the home page of the site where the article originally appeared.
Finally, the Publisher must be notified when and exactly where (specify the URL) an article is posted so that it can be reviewed in context. Permission for posting will be granted only after this review.
Hard-copy reprints of articles appearing in any of World Business Media’s publications can be ordered through our Publisher, Ed Tyler, at (212) 344-0759, ext. 232, or firstname.lastname@example.org
