SUMMARY: I get a lot of emails from people wondering if they can quote Universe Today for their own newsletter, school project, etc. My answer is always "yes". If you think the material in Universe Today is helpful, you've all got my permission to use it for any purpose whatsoever. Republish it into your own website, copy-paste material for your Star Trek fanzine, post articles in your forum, or use it for a book you're writing. Be my guest. All I ask is that you give Universe Today credit, and a link back to http://www.universetoday.com if you can.

This permission is only for stuff in Universe Today, not any outside links. That belongs to them, not me. Also, most of the photos I use are license free (the NASA stuff, anyway), but you should always track back the original owner and make sure you're allowed to use them.

If you've got a website, the easiest way to do this is with the syndication service. Put one line of HTML onto any webpage, and the latest edition of Universe Today will automatically pop in there. Here's a link to the syndication instructions. Universe Today is also maintained in RSS format, so you can gather articles that way as well. Here's a link to the RSS edition.

Hope that clears it up.

Fraser, I really have to complement you on how you are sooo on top of things. I look up to you, I honor you for that. You enforce rules to the right degree, you're an honest person, and you know how to compromise. You da' man!

Dear Fraser,

It's for some time now that I receive end use your mailing-list. Some parts of it I use in http://scifi.punt.nl, an web-log in the Netherlands. So I'am relieved te hear that it is with your permission. I never dared to ask.
Further more, but thats obvious, I like what you're doing and how you're doing it!

For now, best regards and.... Nanoo, nanoo (sorry, couldn't recist) :D
