Permissions Policy

With the exception of “guest posts” written by others (see the bottom of this page), I own the content on this Web site. It is copyrighted in my name. I want to strike the appropriate balance between getting my content widely distributed while at the same time protecting my intellectual property rights. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Without My Permission

You are free to do the following without my permission:
Note: This applies to written content. For art licensing inquiries contact me at [email protected]

  • 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 with the post title and website ( www.toddhampson.com.)
  • Print off my posts and photocopy up to 50 copies for internal distribution within your own company or organization.
  • Print my posts in any non-commercial publication (e.g., company newsletter, church newsletter, class syllabus, etc.), provided you include this copyright notice: “© 2022, Todd R. Hampson. All rights reserved. Originally published at www.toddhampson.com.”

Not Without My Permission

You must have my express written consent to do any of the following:

  • Use this content (art or written) in for commercial purposes, including selling or licensing printed or digital versions of my content.
  • Alter, transform, or build upon this work.
  • Use any artwork whatsoever

Note: Contact me if you are interested in licensing artwork at [email protected]

Re-posting and Translation Rights

I do not permit the re-posting of my posts in their entirety. This is because Google penalizes websites for publishing duplicate content. It often can’t tell which site hosts the original, so I risk getting penalized myself for granting permission. In addition, I don’t allow the translation and publication of my work in other languages. I simply don’t have the resources to validate the quality of the work.

Guest Posts

Guest bloggers retain the copyright to the posts they write. The above permission guidelines do not apply to their work. If you are interested in re-posting or publishing their content, 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 visit my Contact page.
