The Fine Print

All content is the property of The Current unless otherwise noted. While we welcome and encourage the republishing and sharing of our work, the organization reserves the right to alter, cancel or otherwise change its content-sharing guidelines with or without cause and with or without notice.

The Current reserves the right to prohibit republication of any or all of its content on a case-by-case, story-by-story and/or organization and/or company basis. Any media organization, website, blogger or other content creator or sharer that either cannot or refuses to follow the The Current’s content-sharing guidelines will be prohibited from republishing our content in the future.

The Current now makes all its content available for republication and/or sharing for free, but reserves the right to charge for that right at any point in the future.
