Re: Is FanFiction Illegal?
So, I write fan fiction, and I was curious to know just how bad I was being. I asked a few people online if fanfiction was copyright infringement, even if one had no intention of making money from the writing. I got a great resounded "Yes". They said that fanfiction presented a "competing product" to the original, thereby infringing on protected material.
How can it complete with the original if you aren't making money?
The powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.
