Project On Government Oversight (POGO) articles that link to this policy may be freely republished so long as the following requirements are met:
- You must clearly credit POGO and the author(s) of the original article. We prefer you do so in your website’s standard byline location in the format of “Author Name, Project On Government Oversight.” If you are unable to make that modification, an in-text byline at the top of the article noting the author(s) and that the article was “Originally published by the Project On Government Oversight on [DATE PUBLISHED]” will also work.
- You cannot edit or build upon the content or other material of the article (except as described below). Any changes that affect or add to the meaning of the content are not allowed. The only allowable edits are those that reflect changes in time, location, and editorial style. (For example, “today” could be changed to “yesterday”, and “Senator (D-NY)” could be changed to “the Senator from New York” if your editorial style requires that format).
- You must include ALL links from the original article (and add a link to the original article on POGO’s website). You must link the word “Project On Government Oversight” in the byline to the original URL of the article being republished. If that is not possible, the phrase “Originally published by the Project On Government Oversight on [DATE PUBLISHED]” must be added to the top of the article and linked to the original URL as described.
- You may republish POGO-created illustrations and graphics, but you must include proper credit. Proper credit is generally listed in the image caption and attribution.
- You CANNOT republish any other images, graphics, or photos posted in our articles. You must obtain your own license to publish those items or remove them from the republished article.
- You may place our articles on pages with ads, but you MAY NOT sell ads specifically against the content of the article. You must also not state, imply, or otherwise indicate that supporting your organization (financially or otherwise) supports POGO’s work.
- POGO explicitly reserves the right to revoke republishing rights if our work is published on any platform containing hate speech, hateful rhetoric, or otherwise bigoted content.
- You cannot sell or syndicate POGO’s articles.
- You cannot programmatically, automatically, systematically, or otherwise wholesale republish POGO’s content. Even if following all our other republishing requirements. Articles must be selected and republished individually.
- Articles co-published with other media outlets or cross-posted on POGO’s website from another outlet cannot be republished without explicit permission from POGO.
- We do not generally allow the translation of POGO’s work into other languages.
- We’d appreciate if you could include the following at the end of the article: The Project On Government Oversight (POGO) is a nonpartisan independent watchdog that investigates and exposes waste, corruption, abuse of power, and when the government fails to serve the public or silences those who report wrongdoing.
- If you share the republished article on social media, we’d appreciate it if you could mention us. Our official accounts are @POGOwatchdog (Twitter), @pogo.org (Facebook), and @pogowatchdog (Instagram).
