  • Unfortunately, we cannot fulfill requests for original files (e.g. PDFs, PPTs, DOCs or original video files).
  • You cannot make money off of our content. We gave it to you for free, so you need to keep it free by passing it along.

  • A note about copyright from Google: “The way to ensure that your blog doesn’t infringe someone else’s copyright is to use your skills and imagination to create something completely original. If it’s all yours, you never have to worry about the copyright—you own it! If you want to republish content from another author or creator, make sure to get their authorization first.”
  • You do not have permission to take material from our blog and run it on yours.
