Who has the copyright of the text published on italki?

Unfortunaley, I can't remember of the disclaimer. Maybe somebody knows better than me.

I am just wondering, are texts published in one's notebook directly in the copyright of italki or do they remain to the author?

Thank you for helping me.

Actually I'm curious and I wish to know as well. So Skarli, if you asked italki team about it, would you please tell us what was their reply?

I am deeply concerned about that too!


Lately for like months I've been hesitant whether to publish my "mini novels" here on italki. And I'm not looking forward to seeing them stolen (a.k.a. copied and pasted somewhere else) or uncorrected if I do. 


Thank you skarli, for making it a public awareness, well at least now I know there is someone else giving it a thought also :)
