Greenhorn turns to Green Sheet
I am trying to get into the payment processing industry, but it's hard to find information on how to do this. Does The Green Sheet have anything regarding this topic?

When sharing is against the rules
If The Green Sheet publishes an article [on GS Online], and if I think it is a very good article with valuable information, can I copy the article and e-mail it to my clients ... if I include in the e-mail where the article came from and who wrote it?

Thanks for checking in. We'd love for you to share our articles with your customers. However, copying and pasting an entire story into an e-mail, and sending that e-mail, even if you cite our publication, would be a copyright violation. Instead, you may include a brief summary of the article and a link to the page of our Web site on which the article appears.
Is it old news?
Can you please add dates to your [online] articles? I have a hard time figuring out what is old news and what is current.
Thanks for your suggestion. We are in the process of revamping GS Online. Articles on our new Web site will include the date we posted the issue rather than the issue number only.
For example, an article in issue 07:07:01 of The Green Sheet (July 9, 2007) will include that date at the top of the page.
