Pro Publica LogoA couple of weeks ago ProPublica posted a note on their site asking their users to “steal” their stories:

You can republish our articles and graphics for free, so long as you credit us, link to us, and don’t edit our material or sell it separately.

Put in CC terms, the public-interest journalism non-profit has chosen our Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives license. Since the announcement, The Los Angeles Times, Mother Jones, USA Today, Salon, Politico, and Huffington Post have published ProPublica’s work and they’re encouraging other newsrooms to do so as well.
