Content Use Policy


Each of my spaces have their own content use policies. If you are using content from those spaces, please carefully examine the content use policy for each. Please do not contact me to ask something already explained. Now, there are certain times where I ask to be contacted, but that is also stated within each policy.

Content use policy for thetrudz.com:

For text: You may quote up to one paragraph from any single post here, in any single article or paper. For Tumblr, you may quote one paragraph from any single post, per Quote or Text post type. You may not post the entire text; if so, a DMCA takedown will be issued to Tumblr for that content. My name (Trudy) and a link back is all that is required. I do not need to be contacted. However, this policy does NOT necessarily apply to my other spaces. Follow the policies linked above, especially so for Gradient Lair. For photographs: Not for profit, personal, non-inflammatory, fair use is acceptable; I still need to be contacted for use. You may NOT use my photographs on business/news sites or professional blogs without contacting me about licensure and payment first.  

Please do not cross-post my tweets to Instagram or Tumblr; review my writing on hypervisibility to understand why. Tweets of course can be liked/retweeted and also properly academically cited, in accordance with existing content use policies.

Content use policy for items in my Store:

You may quote up to one paragraph from any publication in any single article or paper. You may print for at-home solo use, but NOT for distribution. Each person must purchase each item individually. You may not distribute the actual digital publication via email; each person must purchase each item individually. You may add a publication to your blog lists or syllabi.

Be respectful:

Please DO NOT use my contact information for free labor requests or content use requests; the former will be marked as SPAM; the latter has already been covered here in the Content Use Policy; please review the policies above. If you are using my work in an academic context (e.g. book or paper), an email of a PDF copy is appreciated once you have published it.
