Trying to download stories for offline reading

Recommended Posts

We don’t have a function for downloading stories like some other archives do, largely because we have found it encourages the theft of stories by people who post them elsewhere under their own pen names. We take a fairly dim view of plagiarism here at AFF, and do our best not to facilitate it. We have also encountered instances where an author has taken their work down from the Internet, only to have fans of the stories reposting them without permission. 

So, the answer is that we don’t encourage copying stories for offline reading, but we’re well aware that people will copy stories. No archive that I know of has found a way to prevent it entirely. We won’t explain how to do it, though, simply because we respect the rights of our members with respect to their intellectual property, even if that property is fan fiction and not something that would bring them monetary gain.
