At (WC), we value original creative content and the rights of authors who create that content. This Copyright Policy outlines how we handle copyright issues related to user-generated content on our website.

  1. Ownership of Content: The author of a post on WC retains the copyright to work. By submitting a post to WC, the author grants WC a non-exclusive license to publish and display the work on the website.

  2. Designated First Publisher: By submitting a post to WC, the author acknowledges that WC is the designated first publisher of the work. This means that WC has the right to be the first entity to publish the work, and the author agrees not to submit the work for publication elsewhere until after it has been published on WC. Designating a first publisher can also be important from a legal perspective, as it can help establish the author's ownership of the work and the terms under which it can be used or reproduced by others.

  3. Non-Commercial Use: WC may use the author's work for non-commercial purposes, including but not limited to promoting the website, creating compilations or anthologies of user-generated content, and sharing on social media. The author retains the right to use their work for commercial purposes, and to grant others permission to use their work for commercial purposes.

  4. Attribution: WC will always credit the author of a post and provide a link to the original post when the work is shared or republished elsewhere. The author agrees to be identified as the creator of the work and to allow WC to use their name and biographical information in connection with the work.

  5. Removal of Content: If an author wishes to have their work removed from WC, they may contact us at any time and we will make a reasonable effort to remove the work from the website. However, the author acknowledges that their work may have been shared or republished by others, and WC cannot be held responsible for the actions of third parties.

  6. Copyright Infringement: WC takes copyright infringement seriously and will promptly investigate any claims of infringement that are brought to our attention. If an author believes that their work has been copied or used in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, they may contact us and we will take appropriate action.

  7. Assignment of copyright: By submitting a post to WC, the author agrees to abide by this Copyright Policy and grants WC the rights outlined herein. This Copyright Policy may be updated from time to time, and any changes will be reflected on this page.
