The short answer is no, but if you’re willing to read a little more the answer is more like “perhaps, it depends”.
HeroicStories is copyrighted and stories may not be republished without permission from the publisher.
If you’re looking to repost one of our stories on your blog, on Facebook, or elsewhere publicly on the internet the answer remains a clear no – this is not allowed. We do watch for this and will issue take-down requests to you or your ISP should we find our content stolen, which is what copying without permission boils down to.
You are, however more than welcome, and even encouraged, to link to stories here on the heroicstories.org website. We provide share buttons on all the stories to help you do exactly that.
You may also occasionally forward your emailed copy of HeroicStories to individuals, but not to a list. And again, only occasionally. If you regularly forward every edition then the people you’re forwarding to should get their own subscription (heck, it’s free!). If you want to send something to a large number of people or to a list, send them the link to the story here on the HeroicStories web site.
If you run a publication of some sort – a commercial or registered non-profit newsletter or web site, user group or other form of community publication – contact us with your request. We can’t guarantee that you’ll qualify, but we do believe strongly that spreading HeroicStories is, indeed, part of making this world a better place, and perhaps we can help you do exactly that.
