You may link to the main page or individual pages but I'd appreciate
it if you were to observe to the following "code of good practice":
- Please don't place Aardvark's pages in a frame on your own pages.
It is considered "bad netiquette" to attempt to surround anyone
else's web pages with your own advertising or content. You should
not attempt to "pass-off" any of Aardvark's editorial content as
your own work. Seasoned Net users are aware that by using frames,
pages from several different sites can be displayed simultaneously
on the one screen - but Net-neophytes often don't and this means
they are likely make the mistake of believing that "my content" is
- Please contact Aardvark
to advise me that you are linking to these pages. It's
not mandatory but I like to know who finds my work of interest and
it means I can let you know of any changes to the Aardvark site
structure so that your links don't become invalid if I move things
around at this end.
- Permission is granted for the headline and first sentence of
any Aardvark story to be republished as part of the link text
used on other sites.
It is requested that you place the word 'Aardvark' in bold text
after the link so that the source of the story is obvious - see
Aardvark Daily's main page for examples of how
I do this when links are made to stories on other sites.
LINKING TO A SPECIFIC EDITION
All issues of Aardvark are archived for at least six months (usually
in perpetuity) and the URL is in the form:
Where "yyyy" is the year (eg: 2002), "dd" is the day (eg: 15) and
"mm" is the month (eg: 04). For example, to access the 15 April, 2002 edition
you would use the url
If you want to republish the major part of any Aardvark's content -
please contact me
and get a written release first. Permission is unlikely to
be refused and, if the republication is for non-commercial purposes,
no charge will be involved.
QUOTES FROM AARDVARK
In accord with existing copyright laws, excerpts from Aardvark's
own news stories and commentaries may be quoted freely providing
full and proper attribution is given including the Aardvark URL
which is http://aardvark.co.nz
Feel free to copy, quote or extract this page in part or in its
entirety for use on your own site (an attribution would be nice
though). It never ceases to surprise me just how many sites around
the Web have no clear policy on linking, just plenty of legalese
describing the severe penalties that will be coming your way if you
republish or infringe their copyrights.
By including this page, I'm trying to let other web-site developers
know what I consider fair and reasonable. I would certainly
be interested in hearing from others with differing perspectives
on the matter. Feel free to contact me
if you wish.
