With effect from Spore 100, printed issues of the magazine, and electronic summaries, will be sent on a complimentary basis to selected leading media outlets, editors and writers throughout the world. The objective is to widen and deepen the reach of news and views from Spore through reproduction in other media such as national and international radio, television, newspapers, magazines, Internet publications and news agencies. The Spore User Survey has confirmed that Spore articles are reproduced on countless community, rural and national radio stations; in national newspapers, magazines and local newsletters; in college lecture notes and international examinations. One reader answered the question 'how many people use your copy?' with 'I wish I could say that one million people read my Spore, because I translate some articles in Amharic for the newspaper Zemr in Addis Adaba (capital of Ethiopia).' Sometimes an entire article is stolen from Spore and reprinted as someone else s work. Shame, for example, on the worthless scoundrels at Newslink Africa, a so-called news agency in London, who reprinted a Spore viewpoint on rural radio in January 2000, topping and tailing it of any reference to the source. 'Their' article was later selected for the March 2000 issue of the World Press Review. We invite readers to report any similar sighting to the address mentioned in the next paragraph. If you are a media representative, and wish to receive Spore, and/or the Email Ennouncement of each issue, please request this in writing from the Media Affairs unit at Médiateurs (address given in the colo fon left), or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to explain the media outlets you work for, and your role in them. Reproduction in non-commercial media is permitted, on condition of quoting the source; reproduction in commercial media is subject to restriction please ask for details. If you wish to suggest the names of media outlets to whom we should provide this new service, please contact the Media Affairs unit. Thank you.
