- Copyright Terms
- Statement of Privacy
Merovex and Merovex Press are trade names. The planetary pin logo is a trade mark for Merovex Press. All are protected under US and international intellectual property laws. Use of these properties requires prior written permission from Ben Wilson.
With the exception of “guest posts” written by others (see the bottom of this page) and content of other authors duly credited, I own the content on this web site. It is copyrighted in my name and periodically registered with the US Copyright office. 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:
- 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 and the content of the re-post includes more than 200 words of your originally-generated content.
- 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: “© 2016, Benjamin C. Wilson. All rights reserved. Originally published at Merovex Press.”
Not Without My Permission
You must have my express written consent to do any of the following:
- Use this content in for commercial purposes, including selling or licensing printed or digital versions of my content.
- Alter, transform, or build upon this work.
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 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 email me at merovex at gmail dot com.
