Reprinting and Quoting

All articles and reports contained on this site are protected by United States copyright law. Articles marked “© Copyright Idealware” may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, displayed, published or broadcast without the prior written permission of Idealware. However, you may download material (up to one machine readable copy and five print copies per page) for your personal or organizational noncommercial use only.

Selected articles marked “Creative Commons License” are available under an Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.5 Creative Commons License. You may freely republish, copy, or distribute these articles as long as you credit Idealware as their author. Please link back to the original or to our site when possible. Note that these articles may not be repurposed or modified without Idealware’s prior written permission. As Idealware is dedicated to widely disseminating candid software information, we grant republishing rights and work with organizations to repurpose our information whenever it does not, in our opinion, conflict with our mission or goals.

You may reprint or distribute short verbatim excepts of no more than two paragraphs from any Idealware article, report, or workbook. As we feel strongly that quality software should have the ability to stand out in the marketplace, it is permissible to use these direct quotes in the proper context in software marketing materials. It is never permissible, however, to paraphrase any Idealware reviews or statements. So, for instance, you may say Idealware found XYZ software to be “a good option for organizations looking for a middle-of-the-road donation, registration, and event solution at a reasonable price.”  You may not say "Idealware found XYZ software to be a reasonably priced donation, registration, and event solution."

Idealware will take all steps necessary to prevent the violation of this policy, including legal action where appropriate. 

For specific requests or information about reprinting, repurposing, or quoting our materials, please contact Research and Editorial Director Chris Bernard.
