Please review our Community Guidelines about sensitive, harmful, spammy, or deceptive content.
Respect copyright. Only upload works that you made or that you're authorized to use. This means don't upload content you didn't make, or use content in your works that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or images made by other users, without necessary authorizations.

We want you to feel safe when you're on Creative Novels, which is why we encourage you to let us know if videos or comments on the site violate your privacy or sense of safety.
If someone has posted your personal information or uploaded a video of you without your consent, you should contact the uploader and ask them to remove the content. If you can’t reach an agreement with the uploader, or if you're uncomfortable contacting them, you can request to have the content removed based on our Privacy Guidelines.

Context is very important for all content, but it’s particularly important when posting graphic content. Content that is educational, scientific, newsworthy, or a documentary may often contain graphic content. This type of content is allowed on Creative Novels if it includes context. Adding details explaining helps users find and understand your content. It also helps the Creative Novels team review your video if it gets flagged.
Creative Novels is not a home for glorifying violence or promoting hate. Graphic or controversial content may be allowed if it’s educational but it may also have age-restrictions or a warning screen.
A trademark is a word, symbol, or combination that identifies the source of a product and distinguishes it from other products. A trademark is specifically acquired by a company or other entity through a legal process and once acquired gives the owner exclusive rights to the trademark usage with respect to those goods.
Trademark infringement is improper or unauthorized use of a trademark in a way that is likely to cause confusion as to the source of that product. Creative Novels policies prohibit videos and channels that infringe trademarks. If you upload content on the Creative Novels Platform that uses another party's trademarks in a way that is likely to cause confusion, your content can be blocked and your channel suspended.
If you are a trademark owner and you believe your trademark is being infringed, please note that Creative Novels is not in a position to mediate trademark disputes between users and trademark owners. As a result, we strongly encourage trademark owners to resolve their disputes directly with the user who posted the content in question. Contacting the uploader may resolve things more quickly in a way that is more beneficial to you, the uploader, and the Creative Novels community. Some creators list ways they can be contacted in their channel. Learn more about how to get in touch with others here.
If you are unable to reach a resolution with the account holder in question, please contact us via e-mail.
Creative Novels LLC prohibits the sale or promotion for sale of counterfeit goods on its platforms. Counterfeit goods contain a trademark or logo that is identical to or substantially indistinguishable from the trademark of another. They mimic the brand features of the product in an attempt to pass themselves off as a genuine product of the brand owner.
Channels that promote or sell counterfeit goods may be terminated.
If you believe a channel is selling or promoting counterfeit goods, you may file a Counterfeit complaint via e-mail listed on our contact us page.
Defamation laws vary from country to country but usually concern content that damages the reputation of another person or business. Although the definition of defamation varies around the world, in general, defamation is any untrue statement that is harmful to someone's reputation or causes someone to be shunned or avoided.
We take into account local legal considerations in our defamation blocking process, and in some cases, we require a court order. For us to be able to process a defamation blocking request, the claim needs to be specific and strongly supported. For example, it needs to explain why you believe the statements are untrue and how it damages your reputation.
In some cases, uploaders willingly remove harmful content. Because obtaining a court order can be costly and time-consuming, we encourage users to contact the uploaders of the content in question directly.
When we say circumvention of technological measures, we’re referring to tools that allow users to evade a software’s licensing protocol. This can mean serial numbers, keygens, passwords, and other methods to hack software, like the platform.
If you feel that certain content on the site violates your rights or applicable laws, you may submit a legal complaint under our trademark, defamation, counterfeit, or other legal complaint flows. If you have a court order against an uploader, you may attach a copy of the court order in response to the autoreply you receive, after you file the applicable legal complaint. Each court order is examined and evaluated on a set of regional and global criteria.
Please note that you also have other resources to bring content to our attention. For example, if you feel the content does not comply with our community guidelines, please email us or flag it. We also encourage you to consider whether the content meets the standards for removal under our privacy or harassment policy before filing a legal complaint.
