Impersonation & Misrepresentation of Identity

Policy Date:

Apr 14, 2022

To summarize: Patreon is for creators who put something original out into the world. As a creator, you may not post creations that infringe on others’ intellectual property rights.

You can’t create fake pages or collect money for things you’re not actually doing. For example, you cannot create a fan page for someone else.
You cannot pretend to be or impersonate someone else by using the name, brand or works of another to deceive patrons. We will review satire and comedy in a different way as we believe these subgenres are original creations.
You also can’t use Patreon as a prank or to fund non-activity. For example, a creator cannot collect funds for *not doing* something, such as, “I will stop tweeting videos of playing the harmonica badly if I reach $200 per month.”
