The rule we have at this forum at the moment is that copying an entire paragraph or more than a quote is not allowed without the permission of the author. If the author is a published author, then giving credit to the book + author is alright. Another rule that's recently been added from feedback of the members at this forum is that you cannot copy the storyline of a movie, show or book without permission as well even if you add twists in it or not..

The entire concept of fanfictions is based on this idea; thus, by this notion, we would have to abolish the practice of writing fanfictions in general on IF.  Correct me if I am being obtuse in my interpretation of what is said above.

I think the DT needs to tweak her words on the rule a bit. The idea was that you should not be allowed to copy a book, movie, and or show, without adding distinct changes to the story itself. A word for word copy is not Fan fiction. Or even re-writing it in your own words.

See there has to be a line, between fan fiction and direct plagiarism. This rule was implemented when a certain member copied scene for scene from a show into their FF claiming this was inspiration only. Despite their whole FF being based on that show. Which was clearly wrong - from the characters to the plot was taken as a whole, that is not fan fiction. That is plagiarism.

In fan fiction, you are taking a back story of a character/s and building your own plot through them. Even if the key climax points match, the plot should be different. You are taking major characters, displacing them, and expanding on their story to tell us something completely different.

If i were to say start writing on Arnav and Khushi - and my story follows the path of the show, everything is same, i could not claim that to be Fan fiction now, could i?  There has to be an distinct difference between Fan fiction and Plagiarism.

In the end, the rule needs to be reworded, otherwise Fan Fiction does loose it's meaning.

Got it! This is sort of on the same lines as I was thinking and makes sense. 

Thanks!
