Fair Use and Transformative Works Meet Up

Sunday, March 13
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Room 213
110 E 2nd St


This is not an IRL Coffeeshop AU. But we will talk about the use of follow-on works - both fanworks and licensed properties, historically and as mobile technology becomes more robust and global - as well as topics, disputes and sites that have set fandoms ablaze, public relations moments that have inspired and/or frustrated content creators, the intersection between fan communities and social justice, how fanworks find their way into classrooms, the legal issues that underlie everything fans and content-owners do, and possibly our favorite fic recs. Newbies, content owners, fangirls and fanboys and the curious are all welcome - debates and discussion will hopefully instruct and inspire!
