Authors may consider themselves duly licensed by Insight News to reproduce their work for non-commercial purposes in accordance with this clause. However, should the reproduction of the work be for commercial purposes, Insight News shall be paid a sum of royalty, to be determined on a case-by-case basis, for the reproduction of the work. For avoidance of doubt, reproduction of the work in any medium which is not entirely free to view would constitute a reproduction for commercial purpose, even if the author has not received any remuneration for the reproduction of the work and notwithstanding that the reproduction of the work may not be for purposes of profit.

Where Insight News has a content-sharing agreement with another publisher, the company has the right to share the contents it commissioned and/or paid for with the said publisher/s in accordance with the terms and conditions agreed between Insight News and the publisher concerned.

  11. For unpaid contributions that are published on The Nut Graph, the author may in writing disallow Insight News from sharing his/her works with any other publisher.

However, they may post a blurb of their contribution to The Nut Graph, of not more than 150 words, and provide a link to The Nut Graph’s site 24 hours after The Nut Graph has published their content.
  13. Works rejected by Insight News for publication may be published elsewhere in full once Insight News informs the author in writing about the rejection.
