Change of Lyrics Rule sign now

We, the undersigned, ask that FanFiction.Net change their policy on pieces containing musical lyrics. We ask that the rule, which currently reads If you did not write it, do not post it, be changed to If you use lyrics, they must be disclaimed, including the name of the artist and the name of the song. Violation of this rule would be reported as abuse and dealt with accordingly.

    Songs can really help the mood of our stories. At this rate, we won't be allowed any creativity in our writing. It's called FANfiction. Author/Reader/Both Both

    We put in the disclaimer we don't own it. You deletd stories because it did not belong to the authors. Well, the characters we write about don't belong to us, and yet there's an entire site dedicated to writing Fanfiction. We don't own the characters, yet

    I absolutely agree. If someone does not know the song to which the writer is refering, they may assume it to be the original work of the author. This takes the credit away from the writer, singer, and producer of the song. Author/Reader/Both Both

    This rule should be overruled. Just because people are creative and daring enough to create a fanfiction doesn't mean that they're creative enough to make a whole new song. It takes enough time to write a fanfiction alone. Why bother writing a new song wh

    I think if we have a disclaimer for it, adn just says we don't own anything if or about the song, we shouldn't get in trouble for it! Author/Reader/Both Author

    Fanfiction.net is a rather unfair site. The moderators are lazy asses who don't see fit to answer questions, or help someone in need. Fanfiction.net has gone to the dogs.
