Apologies if this has been covered - I couldn't find it. Is there a policy on reproducing profile content (specifically feedback from the "WWA" and "project history" sections) on, say, one's own website? E.g. a "Some comments from satisfied customers" page reproducing comments left on my Proz profile.

And if it isn't frowned upon, is there a nice easy way of embedding some code in my website or some such, or am I better off copying the comments manually?

I would also like to reproduce the Proz professional guidelines (duly credited of course). I know I could just provide a link, but I'd prefer to have them on my own site. Would this be acceptable according to site rules?

Many thanks in advance,
Solomon

The technical way is to create an HTML Frame using the tag, where the target web page will appear as a component of your page. But the legalities and ethics of it are another story altogether. In fact the whole issue of the legality of hyperlinking is in court (in Canada) at the moment.

Hyperlinking is one thing, presenting an external page as a frame (i.e. with own site menu) another thing, and embedding elements from another site, different case too.

Hyperlinking is the essence of the Internet. If that goes to court, the Internet is self-negated. Imagine a neural network without neural synapses—zilch.
