Yayyyyyy!!!! :D

I do haz question though, about like copyright stuff.
Like I mentioned up there ^^^ I had an account on a website called FictionPress where you could post poems and stories and stuff. And then I found out later that FictionPress gets the copyright for anything you post on their website. So let's say I post a poem on FictionPress for people to read, and then I wanna get the poem published. Well, I can't, because I don't have the original copyright privileges. I would only be able to sell the poem as a reprint.

Anyway, so is that going to be an issue on Bzoink as well? 'Cause at some point, I do want to try to publish my writing. AND I'M SORRY IF THIS MADE NO SENSE. D:
Would it be okay if I took your breath a w a y ?

Generally, if you're interested in actually publishing something.. I wouldn't post it on Bzoink, or any website, because someone is probably going to steal it and try to claim it as their own anyway. However I have a feeling I'll probably end up playing with this more myself than I thought and it will lead to a huge fan following and who knows what will happen THEN..

ANYWAY, while I have not updated the Terms of Service for Stories yet.. It would probably say something fancy about copyrights. All I know is that you, in technicalness, have to give Bzoink copyright permission so the site can display it. (As you do with surveys, quizzes, journal posts, or anything else)

I will not claim Bzoink owns your story, as I have no real interest in doing so, unless down the road things got cool enough that I wanted to issue a Bzoink Stories book... In which case I would probably contact the desired authors directly.

And since Jessa is a writer she mentioned something like that to me a long time ago.. About how when a piece got accepted to somewhere, she has to retract it from submission everywhere else.. I assume for the same reasons, they get the copyrights or something. Well, whatever. You own the story, you can take it DOWN from Bzoink at anytime you want yourself. Well, deactivate it anyway. Delete is one of those options still pending.

Hmm, well in that case, I probablyyyy won't post the main story I've been working on. I do, however, have an old story that I started writing a long time ago, that I want to start working on again. So I'll post that one, after I go edit it a bit.

I'm just curious, will we ever be able to "like" or comment on other peoples stories?
