Republish our unlocked stories.

Unless otherwise noted, you can republish any of our unlocked articles for free. Here’s what you need to know:

  • You have to credit us. In the byline, we prefer “Author Name, The Daily Line.” At the top of the text of your story, include a line that reads: “This story was originally published by The Daily Line.” You must link the word “The Daily Line” to the original URL of the story.

  • If you’re republishing online, you must link to the URL of this story on, include all of the links from our story, and the following newsletter sign up language and link. "Interested in more from The Daily Line? Sign up for The Daily Line’s Free Review membership."

  • If you share republished stories on social media, you must tag us in your post. We have official accounts for The Daily Line, The Daily Line Chicago & The Daily Line Springfield on both Twitter (@TheDailyLineChi and @TheDailyLineIL) and Facebook.
  • You can’t edit our material, except to reflect relative changes in time, location and editorial style. (For example, “yesterday” can be changed to “last week,” and “Chicago, IL.” to “Chicago” or “here.”)

  • It’s okay to put our stories on pages with ads, but not ads specifically sold against our stories. You can’t state or imply that donations to your organization support The Daily Line's work.

  • You have no rights to sell, license, syndicate, or otherwise represent yourself as the authorized owner of our material to any third parties. This means that you cannot actively publish or submit our work for syndication to third party platforms or apps like Apple News or Google News. The Daily Line understands that publishers cannot fully control when certain third parties automatically summarize or crawl content from publishers’ own sites.

  • You can’t republish our material wholesale, or automatically; you need to select stories to be republished individually.

  • You can’t use our work to populate a website designed to improve rankings on search engines or solely to gain revenue from network-based advertisements.

  • We do not generally permit translation of our stories into another language. 

  • Any website our stories appear on must include a prominent and effective way to contact you.

If you have any other questions or would like to disclose your intention, please contact [email protected].
