Can we put parodies of song lyrics in Immersion? Or would that be against the copywrite rules and stuff? I need to know. I love writing parodies!

Stories, songs, etc. are copyright until the writer specifically releases them into the applicable creative commons. Basically, the writer of the parody song holds the copyright until they intentionally release it. Go here: http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Duolingo_Wiki#Getting_Help and click on Immersion Community Guidelines. It will have information on what is and what isn't allowed.

I think he means writing parodies himself in that case he owns the rights. You don't need permission to parody something. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parody#Copyright_issues
