Community Guidelines | Patreon
We ask creators to flag themselves as Adult Content if they create any content that has mature themes such as sexuality or graphic violence. When you are flagged as Adult Content your page is removed from our search. We also require that all public content on your page be appropriate for all audiences. Content with mature themes must be marked as a patron-only post.

We have zero tolerance when it comes to the glorification of sexual violence which includes bestiality, rape, and child exploitation (i.e., sexualized depiction of minors). This is true for illustrated, animated, or any other type of content. Patreon reserves the right to review and remove accounts that may violate this guideline. As a reminder, you should never post or share nude content of any individual under the age of 18, including yourself. As a strong commitment to child safety, we will work with law enforcement whenever we come across child exploitation.

We also do not allow other fringe sexual fetish content, such as incest, necrophilia, or fetish content that is hard to distinguish from non-consensual sex.

We understand that some topics on this list such as incest or rape are a little bit more complicated because these situations are, unfortunately, part of real life. As a result, when reviewing this type of content, the Trust and Safety team will take into consideration context including personal, historical or educational narrative. For example, survivor stories or fiction such as Game of Thrones or Lolita are allowed on Patreon.

Lastly, you cannot sell pornographic material or arrange sexual service(s) as a reward for your patrons. We define pornographic material as real people engaging in sexual acts such as masturbation or sexual intercourse on camera. You can’t use Patreon to raise funds in order to produce pornographic material such as maintaining a website, funding the production of movies, or providing a private webcam session.

How Does VAT Work on Patreon? – Patreon Help Center
VAT (Value Added Tax) is a consumption-based tax that’s assessed on the value added to goods and services -- including digital. It’s charged as a percentage of price (so on Patreon, a $1.00 pledge with 23% VAT will have a final cost of $1.23).   

Starting in 2015, the European Union changed regulations for how VAT is calculated on sales of digital services. It is now determined by the location of the consumer, not the location of the business. This also applies to independent content creators like the ones on Patreon.

Instead of putting the burden on Patreon creators to collect and calculate VAT chargeable to EU-based patrons, Patreon will handle it.  We will automatically present and collect VAT at the applicable rate from EU-based patrons, and we will also take care of the filing and remittance of VAT payments  made by patrons for digital services provided by our creators through Patreon. Creators, whenever you see your patrons’ payments, account balances, etc. on Patreon, VAT chargeable to patrons for digital services has already been deducted.

For creators based in the EU, you will not need to remit VAT charged to Patrons for digital services on your Patreon page because we are handling that for you. If your rewards include physical goods or other things besides digital services we recommend you consult with a local tax advisor or local tax authority for information on the VAT due for those goods.   We also recommend that you consult with a tax advisor or local tax authority to confirm that by using the Patreon platform you will not be required to register for and collect VAT.

So in short -- creators, don’t worry about collecting VAT from Patrons -- we’ve got you covered and are handling everything automatically, behind the scenes.

Should my creator page be marked as adult content? – Patreon Help Center
Patreon restricts some types of content and rewards. You cannot:
Create any content or rewards with real people engaging in sexual or violent acts.
Create any content or reward with nudity, or realistic depictions of sexual or violent acts, unless you flag the page as Adult Content and make the posts only viewable by patrons.

Crowdfunding Backer Patented My Project
I had thought thought all along that if we published everything openly, it wouldn’t be possible for someone else to patent stuff that’s already all over the web.  But I was wrong. Despite tons of prior art out on the web, in academic research papers and even for sale that are LED stickers, the patent examiner missed it and deemed the LED sticker patent “new” and “non-obvious.”  

How could that happen?  The sad truth is that patents are approved all that time that probably shouldn’t be.

Can’t you invalidate the patent? Unfortunately, once a patent gets issued things get much more complicated and expensive. The cheapest option would be for us to go to the USPTO with our prior art list and invalidate the patent though a process called an inter partes review (IPR).  But such a process typically costs between $300,000 and $600,000 to file due to legal fees. In fact, it’s much more than the cost of getting the patent in the first place! So for now, we’ve decided not to go down this route.

The US patent system is broken. This is appalling

It’s a wrap for 'Miss Fisher & the Crypt of Tears' - IF Magazine
Production of Every Cloud Productions’ Miss Fisher & the Crypt of Tears wrapped in Melbourne last week after a lengthy shoot in Morocco.
The final block of the 1920-set adventure starring Essie Davis, Rupert Penry-Jones, Nathan Page, Miriam Margolyes, Ashleigh Cummings and Hugo Johnstone-Burt was shot at the historic Werribee Park Mansion.
Director Tony Tilse posted a bunch of location photos during the shoot, to the delight of Miss Fisher fans who contributed more than $1 million in a crowd-funding campaign to the $8 million budget.
Scripted by Deb Cox, the plot follows Davis’ Miss Phryne Fisher as she rescues Shirin Abbas, a young Bedouin girl (Australian newcomer Izabella Yena) from prison in Jerusalem. The sleuth then sets out to unravel a decade-old mystery concerning priceless emeralds, ancient curses and the truth behind the disappearance of Shirin’s forgotten tribe.

A Potentially Major Lifeline For Low-Income Legal Tech And A2J | Above the Law
With regard to making courts more efficient and enabling them to better serve the underserved, I’ve argued that they need to make better use of modern tools such as online dispute resolution. Urahn makes this very point:

Courts in Utah and at least 15 other states are beginning to use or explore another technology, online dispute resolution, to move the court process entirely online. On a computer or mobile device, people can take every step in the court process — learn about their legal rights, provide materials and evidence, complete other procedural steps, avail themselves of negotiation and mediation tools, and obtain court-enforced resolution of their disputes — without ever going to a courthouse.

The Modernization Our Civil Legal System Needs
Name the dispute -- debt collection, eviction or foreclosure, child custody, bankruptcy, disability claims -- and chances are that the conflict ends up being resolved in the civil legal system. Every day, state and local courthouses are filled with people trying to protect family, home and livelihood.

Increasingly, individuals are navigating this system without legal assistance, sorting through forms, procedures and rules that are difficult, if not impossible, to handle without legal training. The proportion of civil cases in which at least one side didn't have a lawyer was 76 percent in 2013.

Many unrepresented litigants simply make no effort to pursue their rights or defend themselves. Most debt-collection cases, for example, end in a default judgment in favor of the creditor because the defendant fails to respond to the complaint. This may happen because the defendant is indeed in arrears and decides to do nothing, or because he or she is unaware of the lawsuit, feels little hope of success or cannot leave work to go to court.

States’ Vital Role in Providing Civil Justice for Everyone A Solution for the Access Crisis in Our Civil Justice System When Cities Rely on Fines and Fees, Everybody Loses Our 2 Kinds of Criminal Justice, and How to Reconcile Them How 3 College Students Got a Better Deal for Domestic-Violence Survivors
Judicial leaders have made clear that this is one of the most pressing problems facing our courts. In 2015, the Conference of Chief Justices and the Conference of State Court Administrators issued a joint resolution calling for everyone to have access to effective assistance for their essential civil legal needs.
