Using our content

We want as many people to read our stories as possible, so we’ve made it simple for others to take our content and reuse it.

Some of our articles are published under a Creative Commons license (Not including Reuters or The Associated Press outlets). This means that anyone can copy and distribute the work and use it commercially. The key condition is that you must attribute the work to the original author and to global-gathering.com, including a link, and you must indicate if any changes have been made.

We use Creative Commons licenses, which the text can be adapted without permission.

Creative Commons Attribution

Most of our text features have a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license (CC BY 4.0), which means that the text can be adapted and republished without asking us for permission. It’s a license that makes it easy for someone to put an article on their own website or blog, to translate it into another language, to abridge text to fit an available print space (so long as the fact that changes have been made to the original is acknowledged) or to excerpt for audiences who like reading 600 words instead of 3,000.

Commercial use

We encourage magazines, newspapers, websites and blogs to take our content and reuse it. And we are happy for others to make a profit from our features, through advertising or subscriptions. In fact, we’d be delighted if our work helps media outlets.

Global-Gathering is not responsible for the content of external sites.
