Subject to the acknowledgement of our copyright by publishers and to our retention of the intellectual property rights permission will normally be granted to use any of our articles for almost any purpose. We do reserve the right to impose conditions in certain circumstances, and obviously we very much appreciate any reciprocal benefits the publisher may be able to offer…
Below we outline some of the usual criteria we apply when considering publication requestes for various types of publication:
Permission to link directly to any article published on our website is automatic – if all you are doing is providing a link from your site to ours you do not need to request permission and can freely create the link regardless of whether or not your company, business or site operates on a ‘for profit’ basis as long as the linking site is itself lawful and reasonable and being associated with it would not be detrimental to Leads Direct.
If you do create such a link we would appreciate a quick email to let us know about it. You can also use the Request an Article form to notify us if you prefer. If your site is relevant we will also consider providing a reciprocal link from this site or from one of our associate sites if that is more appropriate
As a general rule we would prefer that you link to our article from your site as above rather than copy our article. However, in some circumstances it my be necessary for you to format the article differently from the way it is laid out on our site or you may have specific reasons for not wishing to link to an external site (for example where the article is to be placed on a company intranet).
In these circumstances you should use the Request an Articleform to put forward your request. Permission will normally be granted as long as:
Anyone wishing to reproduce an existing article in print should complete our Request an Article form to commence the evaluation process.
Permission will normally be granted as long as:
Note that where we have had permission from a third party publisher to reproduce an article exactly as published in an external publication although the content will be our copyright the layout itself may not be, and you may therefore need the permission of the publisher to reproduce in addition to our permission. We will advise if we are aware that this may be an issue, but cannot accept responsibility for any proceedings which may arise if you fail to seek any form of required permission. If in doubt this can be avoided by reproducing the text of the article rather than the layout.
If you cannot find an article that you need on this site, it may be that we can create an article especially for you. If you would like to investigate this possibility please complete our Request an Article form to put forward your request in the first instance.
If the topic is one in which we have the necessary expertise and the manner of publication is such that it excludes heavy commercial exploitation we will normally accept such commissions on a non-exclusive or at least limited exclusivity arrangement and subject to our retaining all copyright and future reproduction rights. We do not usually charge for producing such articles, but we do like to see some reciprocal benefits and / or some benefit to the community (for example donations to charity) in acknowledgement of our efforts.
Exclusivity of publication and permission for commercial exploitation may be available, but in such cases a negotiated commercial settlement would be required.
