Permissions Policy

Unless otherwise indicated, the content in my work and on this website is owned by and copyrighted or trademarked to Sigi Osagie or EPG Solutions Limited. Please read the accompanying stipulations in the Terms & Conditions, particularly the “Intellectual Property” section.

I worked hard and paid my dues to accumulate the knowledge and expertise to produce this content. Please don’t steal it.

If you do, I will find out eventually; even if you change aspects of it and pass it off as your own work. And I will pursue you with the full weight of the law.

I will also invoke a voodoo curse on you — do not treat this lightly; this is not a joke or meaningless threat.

I appreciate having my work publicised and disseminated, and it’s somewhat flattering. But I must also safeguard my intellectual property rights — I earn my living from the expertise encapsulated in my intellectual property.

If you’d like to use any of my content, …

  • …you don’t need my permission to:
    • Link to my website, any specific book or product landing page, or any specific article, post or media item on the website
    • Share or post an extract of up to 150 words maximum on a social media platform or reputable website, provided you include a link back to my original material on this website or include the attribution “SigiOsagie.com”
    • Feature my articles, posts, commentary or media items if you are a non-profit organisation (for uses such as in charity publications or for non-commercial research, scholarship, etc.), provided you give full attribution by including the following copyright notice: “© YYYY Sigi Osagie. All rights reserved, www.sigiosagie.com” (e.g., “© 2015 Sigi Osagie…”)

You must not use any of my material in a manner that portrays or infers my endorsement of you, your organisation or its products/services/affiliates, or any other party

  • …you must have my explicit written permission to:
    • Use any of my content for any commercial purposes, direct or indirect
    • Reproduce or publish my articles, posts or commentary in their entirety
    • Use my material in any way that promotes or advances the image, profile or commercial benefits of any individual or organisation.
