This is a serious issue and can get you into a lot of trouble. BookRix is protected if a member violates copyright or plagiarism laws. It’s up to you, as a member, to protect yourself from getting sued and paying A LOT of money.
BookRix has been flagged with many members who are in violation. We have also been flagged by the individual authors and artists who have found their own work on BookRix. Some have taken legal action against the members who may have plagiarized their work or have used their art in books and covers.
If BookRix is notified, about books on your profile, that you do not own the rights to, they will be removed immediately. If this offense is continued, your account will be deleted without warning.
Below is what could happen to you if you break copyright laws.
Be smart and protect yourself. It’s your responsibility.
• If you are found guilty of deliberately breaking or "infringing" copyright law, the owner of the copyrighted material can sue you for monetary damages. Damages in this case means the amount of money the owner lost due to a lack of sales of their materials because you were offering it without copyright. For example, if the owner claims and can prove a loss of $15,000, he can sue you for that sum.
• You may also have to pay statutory damages based on the value of each movie, piece of music or other material for which you broke the copyright. "Willful infringement"--meaning that you deliberately stole copyrighted material--can cost you $900 to $300,000 per work stolen. "Innocent infringement," in which you are deemed to have done the copyright breaking without intent, can still cost you $300 to $150,000 in statutory damages.
• Judges can also impose fines on individuals convicted of copyright infringement. According to the Family Entertainment and Copyright Act of 2005, individuals convicted of peer-to-peer sharing of movies, music or other materials worth up to $1,000 in a 6-month period can be given fines of $2,000 per infringement. Convicted individuals can also be banned from file-sharing sites or the entire Internet by injunctions, or orders, from a judge. Repeat offenders, or individuals or companies who are stealing copyrighted materials and selling them for profit, can be fined up to $1,000,000.

Upload an ePub file
If you’ve already created your eBook as a finished epub file, you can now easily and conveniently upload and publish your eBook on BookRix just the same as a MS Word docx file. Epubs are commonly supported by most eBook readers however, if you don’t have an epub, you can convert your file to an ePub for uploading. We recommend using Calibre http://calibre-ebook.com/ Not all files may be supported for conversion therefore, if you have any difficulty with converting your file to an ePub, we recommend contacting Calibre support.
NOTE: ePub files that are DRM protected, cannot be uploaded on BookRix.
When you upload your ePub file you can choose between two options:
The original ePub file will be used to create the eBook
With this option, you will not lose any formatting you have created in your text. However, if there are required edits to your book, you will not be able to make these changes in the BookRix editor. You will have to make your corrections in your file and re-upload the ePub file. In addition, your eBook will not be able to be read online (only downloaded as an ePub) nor will there be a reading sample offered on BookRix (only in the shops, if your book is for sale).Keep in mind that your ePub will be checked to make sure that it’s a valid ePub file. If your ePub is not a valid file, you will be notified and directed to a page explaining to you the things you need to consider when creating an ePub file so that it is perfect and ready for publication.
The original ePub file will be converted into the BookRix editor
With this option, your file will convert into the BookRix editor and therefore be editable if you need to make changes. You also have the advantage of your book being available to be read online and a reading sample offered, if your book is for sale.
Our free self-publishing services offers writers the opportunity to sell their eBooks in all major online retailers. The 'How to Format your eBook' guide provided here offers simple instructions to create and format an eBook using Microsoft Word. We also provide information on how eBook formatting is different from print formatting.
Almost all of the online retailers we distribute to (Amazon, iTunes, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, etc) have standars in place for the ebooks they accept. To ensure your work is accepted into their shop, we recommend that you review our free guidebook to make sure you have everything you need.

When a book is submitted for sale, it is sent to our BookRix review team for approval. During this process, they will download the ePub file of your ebook and review everything from the book cover to the layout of the book. If your book is approved, it will be sent to our online shops for distribution. Upon the approval of our third party shops, your ebook will be placed in their online store for purchase.
If our review team identifies errors within your submission, they will place your ebook in “revise” mode and send an email to the email address associated with your BookRix account. The email will explain why your book was not approved and outline the issues you will need to fix in order to publish your ebook. If your book is continually resubmitted without changes, we will not longer accept your book for review.
Books submitted to the BookRix review team will be processed within 3-5 business days and sent for distribution. Typically, our online shops will have the approved books listed in their shops shortly thereafter.
