Absolutely everything on PainScience.com is my valuable intellectual property. I make a living as a writer. Unauthorized reproduction of my content — also known as “stealing”! — is seriously frowned upon.
However, you are welcome to publish excerpts on your blog or website. But please…
Some pages are more valuable than others. I sell several books on this website, about topics like muscle strains, neck pain, and shin splints. I encourage my customers to share these with friends and family — I have a very liberal lending policy.
But there are limits! In particular, I prefer that health care professionals — even professionals who have bought all my books — not share them with patients — because that’s just opening the floodgates. Be considerate, and recommend them for purchase. If you have a patient who is poor and desperate, please encourage them to contact me and ask for a free copy.
