The Open Minds Content Usage Guidelines

Thanks for your interest in sharing or republishing our content! Here are some ground rules …

What Open Minds Content Can You Use? And How?

Feel free to share links to any of our content by email and social media. We’ll love you for it!

Feel free to republish in full any Open Minds-original images (such as charts, graphs, cartoons, infographics), videos, or SlideShares by copying or embedding them and including them in your content, as long as you honor the Content Attribution Policy below. (Note: This does not include any stock images we’ve purchased for use in our content.)

Feel free to reference or quote up to 75 words of any of our text content (facts, figures, quotes, etc.) in your own blog articles, presentations, documents, etc. as long as you honor the Content Attribution Policy below.

Unfortunately, we can’t let you republish in full any of our text-based content (blog articles, PDFs, PPTs, DOCs) on the web without our express written agreement. Why? Well, duplicate content is bad for optimizing for the search engines and since we want the world to have easy access to our helpful content, we would like to follow search engine guidelines.

Unfortunately, we cannot fulfill requests for original files (e.g. PDFs, PPTs, DOCs or original video files). Sorry!

You cannot make money from our content. Content is provided free of charge, please pass it forward free of charge.

You cannot claim our content as your original idea (i.e. using our content and publishing it on a channel as your own). We love that you want to share it, but please just share the original link instead. Thank you!
