How You or Your Newsroom Can Republish ProPublica’s Stories
You can, too.
All of ProPublica’s content—our articles, graphics and data—is licensed under Creative Commons. Creative Commons (CC) is a nonprofit corporation that makes it easy for individuals and organizations to share content. You’ll find our CC license at the bottom of this page—and on every page on our site.
You can republish our stories so long as you credit us, link to us, and don’t edit our material or sell it separately. This holds true for all bloggers, independent media, for-profit networks and news organizations, and on your little brother’s Facebook profile.
Giving away our work is an integral part of our mission. We regularly offer up our “deep dive” stories exclusively to news organizations around the country. Free of charge.
The license terms are available here at Creative Commons. Don’t be discouraged because the license says “no commercial use.” You are permitted to display ads on the same page as our republished stories. What you can’t do is resell our stories individually or sell ads specifically targeted to them.
Have questions about how this all works? Please contact our general manager, Richard Tofel.
