Babylon 5 (fanfic) audio drama and its been going on for a while!

Not connected with this in anyway.

Over a dozen episodes, with the next out soon. Though a fan directed jms to it, and hes not a happy bunny. So if your into audio dramas even fanfic ones, might want to grab them now. : )

Heres the mp3s over on itunes.

Since when does Joe have anything against fan fiction?!

The fact that it’s Audio seems to be the biggest issue for him.

Rather than linking to FB again, and I can’t link to the specific thread anyway.

Fan - Yesterday
“JMS, have you heard about this yet? just saw it in a Facebook post. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Novobabylonia/members/

jms - Yesterday at 2:14am
“I strenuously disapprove, and would imagine that Warners would come down very hard on this. That people are volunteers with the best of intentions does not make this any less a blatant case of copyright infringement. A small fanzine is one thing, but the moment you start producing things for audio or video, without getting approval or licensing the production, you've crossed a line that should not be crossed.”

Fan - 21 hourse ago
“Agreed. I did not know if you were aware of it. it is the reason I brought to your attention.”

Jms - 17 hours ago
“The site says that this is non-profit and thus not infringement. Someone needs to talk to a lawyer because infringement does not hinge on profit. It says specifically on every movie ever made that duplication, even without profit, is a criminal offense. They can say they don't intend to infringe, but that's exactly what they're doing by the law. It's like throwing paper on the street and saying "we don't intend to litter." Sorry, but you're doing it, and there will doubtless be consequences if you continue doing it.”

Fan - 8 hours ago
“from what i have been reading, this has been going on since 2007?!? http://www.novo-b.com/mediawiki/inde...itle=Main_Page

The stories based after Londo’s death. Don’t know what jms is looking at – and it’s no doubt splitting hairs – but as far as I can see they don’t claim “this is non-profit and thus not infringement” as jms suggests.

The last, best hope for Babylon 5 Fan made audio drama

Novo Babylonia - a fan made continuation of one of the greatest Sci-Fi saga’s of all time. Produced entirely by volunteers, everything from the music and sound to the writing and acting are done by fans.

I used to love listening to audio dramas. I'll grab these and try them out!

I'm a bit bummed that JMS had that reaction.

I'm very old, good friends with Tony Lunn the creator of Novo Babylonia. He is very sadden by JMS reaction to this. Talking about it this morning, he's really worried about receiving a cease and desist letter from Warner Brothers. Until then he intends on carrying on, should be releasing a new episode soon. Be on the look out.
