Reprint Options and Prices

Updated 3 July 2016 to reflect new subscription pricing.

This is True has several options to get portions of the copyrighted content for free. Obviously, however, I can’t give everything away for free and still survive, so I also have paid content available in a variety of flexible paid options:

Important Note: All use of my content requires prior permission. Per usual industry practice in case of copyright infringement, I require triple the posted prices for after-the-fact permission. Any use of my material indicates your agreement with these terms. In addition to the charges shown above, you agree to pay any collection costs and a 2% per month late fee if you miss the payment deadline. Refusal to pay will indicate bad faith on your part and may subject you to civil and/or criminal court action. All court costs and attorneys fees will be added to your bill. Do not take this lightly: I have won significant damages from major publications who chose to disregard my copyright. I would much rather work with you in advance than penalize you for foolish acts of theft!
