Here at Crowdlaunches, we value good content for our readers; our editors excerpt content from top-quality sources on the web.
The internet itself is built on a foundation of linking, sharing, and recommending good content from a breadth of sources. Curation means maintaining a standard of good, well-written, and relevant material for our audience.
In referencing your content, we are giving it our stamp of approval: we provide direct links to your source material, encouraging our readers to view the content directly on your website.
The goal is to send our readers to your site so you expose new visitors to your top quality content.
We reference your content because it is outstanding!
Most publishers and websites are happy to receive additional exposure for their content. If, however, you do not wish for your content to be shared, simply contact us; we’ll promptly take the article down and won’t reference your site again.
Most online publishers recognize the value of having their stories and articles:
- commented on
- linked to
- reached by new visitors
Sharing good content to multiple sources extends a website’s reach, impact, traffic, and ultimately profit.
We reference your content and point them to the original article.
We urge our readers to discover and visit your original content and website. We want you to benefit from us quoting, referencing, or sharing your writing.
“Fair Use” standards, practices, and legal decisions are still evolving online. We like to think our standards are a cut above the strictly legal interpretation of fair use.
We endeavor for more than “fair use”; we strive for “elated use.”
If you are not elated to be quoted or shared on Crowdlaunches, just let us know. We will immediately correct the situation.
It’s a two-way street: we treat your content the exact same way we hope others will treat ours.
If you like a story on our site, feel free to use it – just give us clear credit, linking back to the original page on our site. Some encouragement for interested readers to visit our original page wouldn’t hurt, either.
Take as much of our content as you think your readers will enjoy. Just link, credit, and encourage readers to visit the original site.
- That is what we do.
- That is what built the internet.
- That is what social sharing is about.
- Everyone wins.
Online content standards are yet evolving; ours may well differ from yours.
Let us know if you feel we’re not adequately crediting you or if we’ve appropriated too much of your story. We will fix it rapidly.
Use our contact form if you have any queries about the policies outlined here.
We also publish user-generated content. We urge our users to also follow these guidelines, but cannot police every single submission.
If you’re a copyright owner & would like material removed from our site, please read our DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) policy and takedown procedure.
