We value the incredible amount of dedication and commitment that goes into the creation process, so helping authors protect their rights is our top priority.
Posting the copyright contents of others without their legal consent is strictly prohibited, as outlined in our Terms of Service and Content Guidelines.
Our policy is to respond to valid notices of alleged copyright infringement we receive by expeditiously removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material.
Repeat infringers - In addition to the above policy, we may, when appropriate and at our discretion, terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe or are charged with infringing the intellectual property rights of others.
Note: Copyright only protects the physical representation of an idea, not the idea itself. Unfortunately, similar plots or story themes may not constitute copyright infringement. If you are unsure of whether a work infringes your copyright, we encourage you to seek professional/legal advice before submitting a notice.

What happens when I report a story?
All reported stories are reviewed before the appropriate action is taken. Sometimes we will request more information to ensure we take the proper action after confirming the violation. If a story violates Pratilipi’s Content Guidelines or Terms of Service, it will be removed.
