Who profits from the Archive Of Our Own? Do users have to pay?
Who profits from the formation of An Archive Of Our Own?
No one, including the OTW as an organization, makes money from the archive or its content; in fact, the opposite is true because the OTW pays to host the archive. Advertising is not shown. Instead, we hold public radio-style pledge drives to ask for support from our users. No donation will ever be required to use the archive or any of its tools.
