Do You Own Your Content on Substack?

  • 2 min read

I know someone reads the Terms and Conditions. So I did it for you.

When you write online on a social media platform such as Medium at some point ask yourself:

Do I own my content?

When writing a newsletter on Substack it’s the same question that popped up in my head recently.

Do I own my content on Substack?

Here’s the answer to this question.

In Substack’s Publisher Agreement from January 2023, it states:

However, please note that you agree to grant us a limited license to your content in order to enable us to operate Substack. This license allows us to promote your content and help you succeed on Substack.
