    Hey Scribes,

    Every once in a while we have an issue that comes up with members posting illegal links to copyrighted material. We know that this kind of thing is too easy and common and "harmless" to think that everyone here is going to be a copyright saint. But when it comes to written works, to anything in the fantasy genre, to sharing writing tips, or to anything else that's in our industry here at Mythic Scribes, we have to have a zero tolerance policy for copyright infringement.

    If you see something that violates copyright law on our site, please help us by reporting it so we can take it down.

    The most recent episode involved somebody linking how-to-write materials from an author that has in fact contributed guest articles to the Mythic Scribes home page. Nothing happened and we took down the links, but it's not hard to understand how it could have become an issue for us if we had let them stand. As we continue to build our reputation, we need to respect the works and rights of others in the industry.

    We're not going to get fussed about something like a music video on youtube, or a piece of art turned into a meme. And we're okay with links to fanfiction so long as it isn't hosted here. But if you see a copyright issue affecting written works, please hit the report button because we need to take it off our site.
