Question:

We are subscribed to a weekly local Jewish news publication. We are paying a yearly fee for a printed version received by regular mail/post – plus an additional fee for an electronic version received by Email. Are we halachically allowed to share the Email version with our children? Would it make a difference, if the children live in town or abroad?
Thanks & kol tuv/Joshua

Answer:

You may send it to your children, because an e-mail is known to the publisher that it will be sent to others.

Best wishes
