Republication of content in any form or medium
Content of The Shorthorn and all other UTA student publications cannot be reprinted, reproduced or copied in any form or medium without the express written permission of UTA Student Publications. To request permission to reproduce an article, photograph or other content, send a written request to the UTA Director of Student Publications, including this information:
- the date and page number and name of publication in which the item was published. If it was published online, include the online section in which it was published and the timestamp date and time that it was posted.
- description of the item: headline or other identifying characteristic.
- full description of the intended use: name of publication, print or online, description of other requested usage, etc.
- If the request is for use of the content in another publication (print, electronic or otherwise), the request should be made by an editor of that publication, who is also is the person who would be required to agree to terms and conditions for republication of work.
E-mail, mail or fax the request to Beth Francesco; Director of Student Publications; Box 19038; Arlington, TX 76019; fax (817) 272-5009.
Republication of photographic content in any form or medium
If the request is to reproduce a photograph or any other visual content, in addition to the criteria mentioned above, the person requesting the photo also may be required to get written permission of persons in the photograph before the photograph can be reproduced, depending on the intended use of the photograph or image.
Permission required prior to re-use
No content may be reprinted or reproduced until written permission has been received from Student Publications and the person or publication requesting use of the material agrees to conditions explained in the permission letter or e-mail that she or he will receive from Student Publications.
