Article Takedown Policy

The Daily Orange does not remove articles from its website without a compelling legal justification. The board of directors of The Daily Orange reserves the exclusive right to modify this policy without notice and as it deems necessary.

The Daily Orange is the newspaper of record for news created by or affecting the Syracuse University community. The Daily Orange’s staff believes dailyorange.com should reflect the contents of the print version of the publication as accurately as possible. We believe unnecessarily altering the contents of dailyorange.com would be a disservice to our readers and the communities we serve by preventing our online component from accurately documenting history as it happens.

If you feel there is a legal justification for the publication to take down an article, column or other material appearing on dailyorange.com, please submit your request in writing to the below address, including with your request 1) the name of the written work, 2) its author, 3) the date of publication, 4) a hyperlink to the online version, 5) the legal justification for taking the work down and 6) any supporting documents.
