Since an embarassing episode between RTWH and another Heaven, the staff have agreed to institute an official policy.

In any stories posted in this forum, if they are found to be plagiarized the author will be punished in regards to the amount of stories plagiarized.

What constitutes plagiarism (otherwise known as "stealing stories"?

  1. Directly copying a story from another site that is not your own.
  2. A story so similar to another original idea that it can only be plagiarized.
  3. Taking segments of another story and incorporating them, word from word, into your own.


The thread will be left open so that questions may be asked.

Ehh, It happens what are ya gonna do? But think of it this way. The story is obviously good if he wants to plagerize it.

Heh heh. Agreed.

Is there any quick way to do a check on peoples' stories? Google would be a good start I suppose. People going between the different forums would also spot the copies quickly enough.

We should all do what Civus does- he puts a copyright under his stories.

But we all just have to remember anyway that we are all taking the risk by posting un-copyrighted original material on the internet at all. It isn't right or anywhere near decent humanity to steal someone else's work, but there is nothing stopping people.

Fair point.

Edited accordingly.

By the way, authors and HeavenGames share a copyright on whatever is posted. The author has the controlling rights; Heaven Games defends its authors.

Don't believe me? Look at the bottom of every page.

Also, American copyright laws ensure the copyright lasts for fifty years past its initial release. Our servers are in the US, so follow American laws.

Feel free to write and post.

It depends which you value more; sharing your story with as many people as possible, no matter whether you take the credit for it every time, or sharing it with a few people and making sure you get the credit. Not cowardice; an understandable if not exactly selfless sentiment.

Plagiarism checkers are wonderful tools to hit upon plagiarism in files. However, you need to remember the fact that they can not access password protected areas or some thing that isn't always in their databases. Try this to get all http:///www.plagiarism-checker.me
