Re: Regarding Fan Films set in the Abramsverse
I asked Bob Orci about it once on Trekmovie and he said that he didn't know anything about it. So if such a rule exists it's from CBS, which is very strange since they don't own the JJverse.
I believe it is from CBS as per the guidelines posted (see King Daniel Into Darkness' post): perhaps it is rather because
they don't own the Abramsverse that they don't want anything done? They can decide for themselves whether they think fan films somehow infringe damage what they own in any way (which I think is the main consideration) but they don't think they can decide for... I assume Paramount the movie studio are the ones with JJVerse rights? In any case, they might not think they're in a position to judge that.
Here's a test to see how many people read signatures. If you read this signature, add this text and the word "Wibble" to the bottom of your signature, like so.
