1. Your articles are yours (or your publisher’s)
You most likely get paid for your articles, which almost certainly means that you give the rights to your articles to someone else. Whether as a freelancer or staff journo, you hand over the copyrights and/or ownership rights to your publisher in return for a living.
Using Authory does not affect any of these rights. Adding articles to your Authory account changes neither the existing ownership rights nor the existing copyrights of the respective articles. We do not own your articles, we do not publish them.
By using Authory you grant us the right to use your articles solely to provide you with our service (e.g. backup, search, notifications to your readers). Authory is a service to make your life as a journalist easier, it does not have any effect on the relationship between you and your publisher, whether freelance or staff journalist.
