Knowlative Author’s Agreement and Publication Guidelines

This Author’s Agreement (“Agreement”) is entered into by and between the Contributor (“Author”) and Knowlative (“Platform”), collectively referred to as the “Parties.”

  1. Purpose

The purpose of this Agreement is to establish the terms under which the Author may submit content to the Platform, which operates with a mission to foster collaboration and share knowledge in the field of kinesiology and muscle response testing.

  1. Content Submission Guidelines

2.1 Modifiable vs. Non-modifiable Content

  • Modifiable Content: The Author may choose to label their submitted content as “Modifiable,” allowing other PRO users of the Platform to suggest updates. The original Author will always be credited, with contributors listed accordingly. This is the preferred option to encourage collaboration and knowledge growth.
  • Non-modifiable Content: This option is reserved for content that is the Author’s original creation and does not derive from existing works. Only the Author can update this content.

2.2 Responsibility for Content

  • The Author guarantees that all content submitted is either original work or properly credited and that it does not infringe on the copyrights of any third party. The Author is solely responsible for ensuring compliance with copyright laws and obtaining any necessary permissions.


  1. Copyright and Intellectual Property

3.1 Understanding Copyright

Copyright is a legal right that grants the creator of original work exclusive rights to its use and distribution, usually for a limited time, with the intention of enabling the creator to receive compensation for their intellectual investment.

3.2 Important Note on Copyright and Ideas

It’s important to distinguish between ideas and the expression of those ideas.

Copyright law does not protect ideas, concepts, systems, or methods of operation. Rather, it protects the original expression or fixed form of these ideas.

This means that copyright does not cover the ideas described in texts but rather the specific way these ideas are expressed or illustrated, including the wording, organization, and any accompanying images or graphics.

Consequently, if you write a text that describes the same ideas found in another work but use your own words and original pictures or photos to convey these ideas, you are not infringing on the copyright of the original work. This practice involves creating a new, original expression of the idea, which copyright law considers a separate work entirely.

However, while the replication of ideas is not subject to copyright infringement, it is essential to approach this with caution and respect for the original creators. Ensure that your work is truly original and adds value, rather than merely altering the superficial aspects of someone else’s copyrighted material. Besides it is mandatory that you cite every source you use for your work to credit the ideas that you are using for your original work.

Remember, while copyright protects the form of expression, other legal doctrines, such as patent or trademark rights, might protect the underlying ideas if they meet specific criteria.

  • Is copied from another source without permission from the copyright owner.

  1. Indemnification

The Author agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the Platform, its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, demand, loss, liability, or expense arising out of the Author’s breach of this Agreement, including but not limited to infringement of copyrights or other intellectual property rights of any third party.
