Happened to see a link to this competition, and thought, what the heck, there's no fee and the first 2,000 words of my novel could just about
sound like paranormal suspense.
Then I saw this in the ts and cs (on the entry form itself):
|I understand and accept that ideas and titles cannot be copyrighted, and that any similarities between my work and any future works of the judges of this contest are purely coincidental. |
Yes, of course I understand the first part, but don't you think the second part of the above reads less like a standard disclaimer and more like 'if you do send in some titles/ideas that grab me or my pals, be aware that we'll probably cherry-pick them'? Or am I just getting paranoid in my old age?Edited by Astrea at 21:02:00 on 24 June 2013
