Permissions Policy

With the exception of “guest posts” written by others (see the bottom of this page), the content on this website is owned by the SUCCESSION FRAMEWORK. We want to strike the appropriate balance between getting content widely distributed while at the same time protecting intellectual property rights. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Without Permission

You are free to do the following without the express written consent of SUCCESSION FRAMEWORK:

  • Link to this site or any specific post on this site.
  • Extract and re-post less than 200 words on any other site, provided you link back to the original post.
  • Print and photocopy posts up to 50 copies for internal distribution within your own ministry or organization.
  • Print posts in any non-commercial publication (e.g., company newsletter, church newsletter, class syllabus, etc.), provided you include this copyright notice:
    “© SUCCESSION FRAMEWORK. All rights reserved. Originally published at www.successionframework.com.”

Not Without Permission

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

  • Use this content in for commercial purposes, including selling or licensing printed or digital versions of content generated by the SUCCESSION FRAMEWORK.
  • Alter, transform, or build upon this work.

Re-posting and Translation Rights

SUCCESSION FRAMEWORK does not permit the re-posting of content in its entirety. This is because Google penalizes websites for publishing duplicate content. It often can’t tell which site hosts the original, so we risk being penalized for granting permission.
In addition, we don’t allow the translation and publication of work in other languages. We 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. We cannot serve as a broker, agent, or contact point.
If you have some use for our content that is not covered here, please email me.
