Reuters Health doesn't send out stories before the embargo, because our
customers (mostly Web sites) aren't usually equipped to do anything with them
except publish them.  So by the time the customer can get his mitts on the
story, the embargo time has passed.  We do use it internally though.

Your fourth date is customer-specific for us: the customer typically can
publish the story for 30 days, but can buy the right to publish it for
up to a year.
