As you can see from title why do they like buy really famous stories???
So they can make money off the featured versions. They’re a business. Profit is the goal. If community stories are popular, they’re often bought with the assumption that the featured version will also be popular - especially in gaining new readers because new readers now have to read so many chapters in featured stories to unlock the whole catalogue, including community stories.
do they get paid?
The original writer?
I’m not sure. If they want to get paid, they can.
dont they have to be 18 to get paid?
I think most of the stories that are features, the writers are 18 or older
Yes. Episode buys these stories and pays the authors lol. They don’t just take the rights.
so episode could just “steal” there story if they arent 18…
There can be exceptions with a parent or guardian signature I believe.
that makes sense
I aint getting paid any time soon
rlly?! but episode usally takes other ppls stories without crediting the author and making it
Like that one about the girl that wants to get pregnat. I read the orginal a looong time ago but they never metioned the og author
Cause episode is the one that wrote it
