I wonder if the license extends to all products in the franchise? Could, hypothetically, someone use David Mack's OCs and original races from his books in a Star Trek fanfic?
Well, at the moment, it doesn't apply to Trek fiction, just to the properties belonging to Warner Bros.' Alloy Entertainment group -- meaning book series/CW shows like The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, and Gossip Girl. Though the press coverage is predicting that other licensors will join in pretty quickly.
That's why I'm using Trek: It's the most relevant hypothetical to the board. Plus I can see CBS doing this sort of thing with Trek--but a ton of restrictions, figure the Paramount's rebooted timeline would likely be hands off
