Writer Protocol

Use of this site is for members only. For the protection of everyone concerned, members may not lend their user ID or password to others.

Random checks are done to verify that the registered member is the person using the services of InkTip.

In order to list any script/book (herein referred to as "Material") on InkTip, scripts/books must be registered through the Writers Guild, U.S. Copyright Office, or any other recognized copyright/registration agency.

InkTip gains and retains Industry Professionals (producers, directors, representatives, etc.), as well as other writers, by promotion of successes from the use of our site. Therefore, we ask all writers to follow the protocol below:

I, a writer and user of InkTip, understand that I am to never contact an Industry Professional through any means due to a logline/synopsis/resume viewing or related to any script request pitch unless I am contacted by said Industry Professional.

I understand that the only time I am allowed to proactively contact an Industry Professional is at least three weeks after my treatment and/or script has been downloaded by said Industry Professional. I will contact them only via physical mail. If an Industry Professional asks for my script through a script request submission, I understand that I can follow up only after three weeks have passed via email, if the Industry Professional has already emailed me.

I understand that InkTip script requests are for members (Pro and regular) only. I will not submit Material that isn't requested by an Industry Professional nor will I submit outside of the InkTip submission system.

I understand that my Material is subject to certain submission requirements as dictated by InkTip. This includes submission requirements for titles, loglines, synopses, and accolades. I will follow these to the letter and understand that InkTip can remove my Material from their site for breaching these requirements.

I understand that pornographic Material is strictly prohibited, and InkTip has the sole discretion to determine if Material is pornographic. Violation of this will result in Material removal and account banning.

I understand that any Material, either on InkTip or submitted to script requests, must be completed. The submission of incomplete Material is strictly prohibited, and violation of this policy will result in account suspension.

I understand that if I am an InkTip Pro member, it is in my best interest to use my membership benefits to their fullest, and it is not the responsibility of anyone other than myself to do so. I understand that InkTip is not obligated to remind me of unused benefits.

I understand that these are conditions to using InkTip.

If Material is sold/optioned or the writer gets work, a development deal, or representation, etc., through InkTip, the writer must inform InkTip via email. InkTip reserves the right to announce any successes obtained through our network.

We require all parties to be respectful of one another.

InkTip reserves the right to change this Protocol without notification.

For reference, this is the protocol that our Industry Professionals agree to.
