CopyingIf someone copied another person's story, would FicWad do something about it?
|Tikatu||Considering that they state in their philosophy (found on the Help page) that they won't tolerate plagiarism, yeah, I'd say they'd do something about a plagiarized fic - if that's what you mean by "copied".|
|Ithilwen||Yes. Plagiarism, whether it's word-for-word, paraphrased or overarching original story, is punished on ficwad. As a matter of fact, I think plagiarism, blatand harassment and misrating are just about the only things that aren't allowed on ficwad.|
|Kemayo|| I would, however, like to point out that we're taking plagarism in the literary sense, not the strict academic sense.|
That is, if someone literally copies your story word-for-word we'll act on it, but if they just write a story with the same general premise and plot, we're not going to touch it.
