Before listing a script on the storybase, a writer is expected to fill their story abstract and provide proof of ownership in the form of copyright or something equally substantial. We carefully vet producers who want to buy scripts by ensuring they have legally registered companies as well as other due diligence that falls under KYC (Know Your Customer).

They (the producers) only have access to the script loglines and a little information on the story abstract; however, they must be subscribed in order to read the full story profile and place a bid. (A story profile includes Synopsis and 10% of the script pages).

Apart from accepting a special non-disclosure upon payment. The platform keeps a record of producers who have accessed more information about your script that is open to the general public and these along with our carefully revised terms of use discourage abuse of the platform and theft.

Producers only have access to your story abstract and the logline; they will not be able to access or read your script till they have registered their interest to bid for your script and have signed an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement).

We are leveraging state-of-the-art (proprietary) technology in ensuring transparency in the process through which producers access your content while securing your script(s) against intellectual theft.
