I provide it at no cost to increase interest in growing and developing these plants, to encourage more people to take an interest in plant breeding, and, of course, to attract people to our web site. For non-commercial purposes, anyone may use an excerpt, not to exceed 200 words, or 5 photos, as long as attribution is provided along with the material that you use. Each excerpt and image should have a separate attribution. If you are publishing on the web, this should include a link back to the page from which you obtained the material.

I am not sympathetic to people who use my writing or images in bad faith. There aren’t many pages on the Internet that discuss most of these plants. I have search alerts and I read everything new that is published.  If you use material without permission, I will eventually find out and then I will ask you to remove the materials and refuse to ever allow you to use anything else. If you don’t act quickly to remove the materials, I will absolutely use social media to make others aware of your act of theft. I rarely refuse when people ask and are willing to link back to us, so it is foolish to take the risk.

I don’t like to be a hardass, but I have been dealing with dozens of thefts each year, many quite brazen and unapologetic, ranging from personal blogs, to competing companies, to scientific publications.  If simple courtesy doesn’t motivate you, hopefully fear of exposure will.
