Scribbr Copyright Policy
Scribbr respects the intellectual property rights of all content creators. Copyright owners can manage their rights on Scribbr. To learn how, please read the “Copyright Disputes” section below.
Scribbr users are prohibited from submitting copyright-infringing content, including questions, answers and Documents. In other words, only submit your original work and not works created by someone else without their express authorization. Copying material from third party sources, either directly or by paraphrasing, is copyright infringement and therefore prohibited on Scribbr.
By submitting content on Scribbr, you represent that:
- You own the copyrights to the content or have express permission from the copyright owners to use and upload the content;
- Your uploading of the content will not violate any law, regulation, or ethics code, including your school’s academic integrity policy (if applicable);
Scribbr will remove or disable access to content if we are notified that it infringes on copyright. We will also terminate the accounts of those who repeatedly violate this Policy.
If you believe that content submitted on Scribbr infringes on a creative work that you or an entity you represent owns and you want to request that the content be taken down, you can submit a valid copyright infringement notice via email to email@example.com or at the address listed in the “Contact Our Designed Agent for Copyright Infringement Notices” section below.
