Question 1.17:
May I post this great Jewish essay I just read?


Yes, if you obtain permission from the publisher. They are often glad to give permission to republish articles occasionally, provided that you include subscription information. Point out to them that several S.C.J readers have subscribed to journals after seeing articles republished electronically. All it usually takes is a phone call or letter.

If you only wish to discuss the essayist's ideas, just post a summary and a pointer to the article for interested readers.
