Mentioning Companies and Brands In The Story?


#1

For example, let’s say I mentioned Netflix, Youtube, Facebook, Gucci, Calvin Klein? I mentioned Netflix in my script, but I’m not sure if that is ok?


#2

Idk but Ik just to stay safe just use fake or made up ones that people will know that it’s that. Like Aeitflix or Episodeflix


#3

Yes, I would just make up fake parody names of the brands like JesusLover2.0 said. I have heard of authors being reported for using brand names, and having to go back and edit them out.

Epiflix is another version of Netflix l have heard.


#4

Can we write things like ‘Jetflix’ or ‘Petflix’?


#5

Yes. As long as you don’t use the real company name, you are pretty safe.


#6

I know you can’t use it in backgrounds and you have to change the name of brand (for example: I had to change Instagram to Epigram) but I think it’s fine to say it in your story, but if you want to be really safe then u could change the names.
