Republishing policy

Bangkok Post Plc. has joined the "Society for Online News Providers" (SONP). The formation is aimed primarily at protecting the proprietary material of news websites. SONP policy states that RSS feeds are the proper way for other web sites to receive content from news providers.

To assist readers in making fair use of content from the Bangkok Post, Bangkok Post Plc. has introduced official RSS feeds that web publishers, webmasters, website owners and any person may use to reproduce content from the Bangkok Post. The official RSS feeds typically contain a headline, a 100-150 character summary and a URL link back to the original full-text article on the Bangkok Post website for each story in the feed. Only the official RSS feeds can be used for this purpose. Content of the feeds can not be altered. For details on how to use the official RSS feeds, please refer to this link or contact our Web Master at directly.

We trust our readers will understand that while we encourage fair use of the Bangkok Post, unauthorized replication of content in excess of fair use does impact on our business and the livelihood of our employees.

Web readers can refer to or quote Bangkok Post contents only by posting a headline with a URL link to the source page on the Bangkok Post website.

Please note that;

  1. Bangkok Post does not permit web publishers, webmasters, website owners and any person to republish content from the Bangkok Post in any other manner from that described above (RSS feed) without written permission.
