Do You Ask Bloggers for Reprints?

A tipster sent in this post from Crunchnotes, which features an email exchange where a staffer from Qorvis Communications asks TechCrunch’s Mike Arrington about “reprints.”

Arrington’s response: “yeah, we’re a blog, we don’t do prints, let alone re-prints.”

On the other hand, David Parmet points out in the comments: “Some companies like to reprint their press mentions with a logo and the masthead from the publication. They use this for sales. Most print pubs charge for this sort of use. That’s probably what she was asking about.”

Do most print pubs charge for this? It definitely varies, depending on the publication and what exactly you’re using the clip for. We’re curious to hear your thoughts on this matter.
