Terms Of ServiceAbout Pagan JourneysPrivacy PolicyCopyrights & Posting
Because the staff of Pagan Journeys take copyrights very seriously, we've decided to add another page with all our copyright information in one place.

Some copyright facts: (from copyright.gov FAQ and freelancewritinggigs.com)

Copyright, a form of intellectual property law, protects original works of authorship including literary, dramatic, musical, and artistic works, such as poetry, novels, movies, songs, computer software, and architecture. Copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed.

Publication is not necessary for copyright protection.

To qualify for copyright protection the only requirements are that an item be an original work that is “fixed in any tangible medium of expression.” In short, once you’ve hit save on your file, uploaded it to a server, put a doodle down on a napkin or otherwise fixed your idea into some tangible medium, it is copyright protected.

There is no registration requirement, no need to mark it with a symbol or even to indicate that it is copyright protected at all. If you created, it simply is protected and you hold the copyright in it.

Since a number of the staff here at Pagan Journeys have authored material in some form, we are very sensitive to the problems that arise when internet users are ignorant of, or flat out ignore, copyright protection laws.  And because we understand that finding your work on someone else's site is infuriating, we do not allow copyrighted material to be posted here without permission.  Similarly, we do not take ownership of anything posted by our members ... if a member chooses to share material they've created, including posts made here, it belongs to them and we thank them for sharing with our community.

We aggressively moderate for copyrighted material and will delete any posts we find that contain copyrighted material if we haven't been given prior permission from the creator that posting it here is acceptable.  To prevent random internet users from stealing our members material, we strictly limit bots and guest ability to see the general forums ... they can only see the FAQ, TOS & About pages, Announcements, and the Welcome Forum.

The bottom line?  If you don't see a statement allowing you to repost an article, story, blog entry, picture, etc, don't post it here.  If you obtain permission from the author to post it, fine ... but send one of the admins a copy of that prior to posting it.

Forum Copyright Rules: (also see TOS section 14)

 - If permission to allow the posting material is obtained from the author/publisher of a writing, contact a staff member prior to posting such material.
