don't take it personally .. ok
it's just we get A HELL OF A LOT of newbies asking the same thing over and over
information for no effort put in or for free.
we like to encourage people to find things out for themselves, it makes you a better trader.
No... IT IS COPYRIGHT
Giving someone the link (is approved by babypips)
COPYING THEIR INFORMATION (that's one thing in itself , if you are doing it for personal use)
but, SHARING THAT AROUND hehe this is where the line gets draw in the sand
You need PRIOR WRITTEN NOTIFICATION AND APPROVAL
so.. if babypips says.. OK
then ok mate
but honestly, to ask them is to rub them the wrong way.
you are wrong
commercial or otherwise
WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION, Sharing of it is illegal
it comes down to control
Free or not, they want to control it
because, here's an example
what if someone copied a lesson on the site that says
1 standard Lot is equal to $10 per pip
now let's say that someone edited that accidentally or purposely and changed it to $100 or $1 per pip
now what if someone wanted to sue babypips for inaccurate information,
but that guy had distributed like 100,000 copies over the internet
there is a question of liability and babypips being the creators of the content CHOOSE to give it away for free
AND they therefore CHOOSE if YOU or I can share it around
at the moment THEIR CHOICE is ,, No we can't
Free or not, Commercial or not
but i understand your point of view anyway, and it's the point of view of most people,
but this is about law, not personal opinion
it's a funny little beast
Cheers and peace to you to dude.
