Permission Template

One of the most important lessons that we can teach our students about Net-based information is the concept that information is property. It results from hard work and remains the property of its creator unless otherwise clearly indicated.

Most web authors are eager to have teachers use information from their web sites in the classroom. They are just as willing to have students use web information for their various reports. It is critical, however, that permission be gained from the owner of the information, and that the permission be documented.

Simply fill in the form to the right such that it carries the sense of the message text. When you click the Process Message button, you will be able to read and edit the entire message with your information inserted into the appropriate places. After reading and editing the message, you can click Send, and the message will automatically be sent to the web master or author.
