Our members have written some great ‘ original ‘ tutorials over the years, some of which have been linked to by various Universities as recommended, and in some cases, required reading for specific classes.


1. If you are an educational body or a non-profit institution you are welcome, without our expressed permission, under commonly understood ‘ Fair Use ‘ policy, to republish a small portion ( an excerpt ) of these tutorials provided that you credit the tutorial writer/author and link back to the original source on TAZ.

2. All others must request permission from TAZ or the author. A simple e-mail is usually enough to be granted the same permission as above, provided you are not going to financially benefit from the tutorial without compensating the author. Our members wrote these tutorials for free for the benefit of our members and visitors, and it would be grossly unfair for someone else to financially profit from their hard work and ( the author ) not be compensated for it. They did not write these tutorials so that you can make money, and they get the shaft. So….if you’d like to republish a small portion ( an excerpt ) of these tutorials on your site and credit the tutorial writer/author with a link back to the original source on TAZ….send us an e-mail ( administration[at]thetazzone.com ).

3. As always, you are welcome to link to these tutorials without our expressed permission, no e-mail is required to just link to them. Whether you are linking to one, or more than one, or all of them as a collection. We encourage you to share these tutorials with your readers by providing your visitors with a link to them.

4. If you have any questions regarding these tutorials please go to TAZforum, all the authors are members of our forum community, and all these tutorials are available there as well, so the best place/venue to ask questions is our forum.
