nihilistic_kid: George R. R. Martin is wrong about Lovecraft
"In some tilt against the windmill of fan fiction, George R. R. Martin makes the false claim that [H.P. Lovecraft] let so many others play in his sandbox, he essentially lost control of his own creations...[and] Those copyrights are ultimately all that separates an [Edgar Rice Burroughs] from a HPL.

Martin is wrong about many other facts in that post—copyrights do not need to be defended to be maintained, that's trademark—but he is gloriously wrong about Lovecraft."

Is Fan Fiction Really So Wrong?
What gets me in this conversation is the privilege involved. You're talking about hugely successful writers who are so successful that they do not have to be concerned with offending their most loyal and invested fans (and make no mistake, kids - the people who write fanfic in your worlds are your biggest fans).

there is a link to her LJ at the bottom, with an interesting discussion of copyright.

Nick Mamatas - George R. R. Martin is wrong about Lovecraft
"In some tilt against the windmill of fan fiction, George R. R. Martin makes the false claim that [H.P. Lovecraft] let so many others play in his sandbox, he essentially lost control of his own creations...[and] Those copyrights are ultimately all that separates an [Edgar Rice Burroughs] from a HPL. Leaving aside the "issue" of fan fiction in general, Martin's most egregious errors deal with Lovecraft. I'm sure other people will flense Martin about the tangled mess of his various claims, but I'll step up for the old man."

cofax7: On Fandom and Ownership
This arose out of the Fandom and Ownership panel at Escapade, where I found myself somewhat startlingly in the minority on a couple of issues. When I wrote up my panel notes, rivkat asked me to expand on these issues a bit; and what I've ended up with is fairly sweeping, based on my experiences in fandom over the last (on-and-off) sixteen years.

RT : thingswithwings says all the things I think about vidding and our god awful copyright laws:

Right now a thing that is happening is that the OTW is fighting for DMCA exemptions for vidders, especially the right to break DRM on copyrighted materials. This is an important part of the fight against DMCA in general and the fight for remix culture, fair use, and new art forms as well. The lawmakers already came back with a statement that they're just not sure why vidders would need digital footage (ie, why not use low-quality footage taken from the internets, rather than breaking DRM on a DVD or blueray disc or iTunes download?) and stating that they didn't feel one of the vids presented, in particular, had its own narrative/message - in other words, that it didn't make the cut in terms of showing sufficient "originality." Originality is a big fucking deal in American copyright law.
