By using?logline.it?(The Website), you agree that Logline It nor?its legal owners can be held responsible for any use of any ideas posted to The Website. You cannot claim any damages from the use by others of an idea you claim to be yours.
Once loglines are posted, you will not be able to edit or delete them. The idea is to respond to the feedback you get, by posting an improved version in the Comments/Reviews.

It is good to know that copyright does not protect ideas, only their material expression in some work such as a film, novel, or painting. If you have a great movie idea, you cannot rely on copyright law to prevent others from using it unless you have expressed it in material form, for example as a synopsis expressing that idea.
So the best thing to do, is to work quickly. Improve your logline, and write your script. The chances are minimal that anyone cares more about your idea than you do.
