I get requests from publishers to link to, and/or reproduce, content here all the time.

Copyright law is pretty clear as to what is legal: Anyone can link to any content on the internet, including "deep links." It is considered "Fair Use" to reproduce a paragraph or two — a small proportion of the total article — in another work. Reproducing the entire work without the Author’s permission is not allowed. 

Now you know . . .

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    It is quiet tempting to wish to retain the whole content of blogs as opposed to part, as the effect is quiet surrealistic and cheering in its essence.
