Lucas can shut down all star wars fanfic, not just stuff that gets charged for. I'm guessing from memory. Which means most current fan fic would still not be allowed by "compulsory licenses". So Amber's story is going back into the workshop for some serious overhaul work. It would have "diluted" the original somehow.

When did Jerry Siegel die? I just posted an essay about the necessity of fanfic which came out of this discussion, which is really very long, and more of a parenthentical digression to a digression than a relevant comment. But I still think it should be the creator's choice about whether it should be published--and as I have said before, the nature of distribution these days is such that putting in on the web can be the equivalent of a publication. If a creator says outright "please don't write fanfic based on my characters," then I think people need to follow that.

My current sense is that writers will play with such universes, and that it's no great matter if they quietly exchange their stories with each other.

I think having one's work ficced is more an honor and homage than otherwise, but are there legal issues involved with noticing and not taking action? Okay, let me restate and amplify my remarks for the record. I'm afraid I remember the upheaval in the Tregarde fandom over the new disclaimers, the disappointment over the ending of the Darkover anthologies, and the hysteria that seemed to tinge the whole incident better than the details of the actual case. There's been some kissing, and there's also been just a hint of things here and there. This was bitterly opposed by the Nabokov estate basically, his son Dimitri , on the grounds that it was a bad novel, copyright violation -- etc. What about action figure wookies? There's another aspect to the argument besides the rights of the author--what about the rights of the culture?
More specifically, this is my attempt to implement Cascading Style Sheets, a newish set of coding which allow much greater control over my page's layout and appearence than using just Hypertext Markup Language. Suppose I should have done something with a Valentine's theme, but.. Anyone still enjoying the drawings? An ad on craigslist turns into meeting and lot of fun Rated. Since this week's drawing is a quickie, and the Zombiemaster always seems to be popular, here's a reposting of his first appearence. Not actual MC, but possibly enjoyable for fetishists and well-made in a more mainstream sense.
