  1. Okay, so personal rant coming up…

    I was reading A few posts off site that a couple friends had shared and I felt absolutely disturbed by them.  It might be a few years back and all, but...  

    To have published authors who readily compare fanfic to home invasion (because (imo) free publicity is certainly the same as having someone break in and take everything), immoral  (... not touching that idea...) making them want to 'barf' (excellent wording, btw), and referring to it as adultery... 

    Are you serious?  I understand the idea of not liking it (I don't agree, but that's a personal thought process and one I can't force on others)...  But really?

    Sorry, just a little growly over this...

      I think more authors are becoming open to fan fiction. However, there is still a huge stigma dating back to the Marion Zimmer Bradley legal issue (which remains unclear to this day, IMO). Many authors won’t read any fan fiction of their work because they are afraid if anything they write resembles that fan fiction, they will be sued. It’s tainted the relationship between fan fiction writers and authors for some time.

      Now, this is a humble opinion of a delusional madman here...  But if I was published and I saw some fanfic of it on here (he'll, if someone contacted me and was like "I want to write in the universe of Blood Prize" I'd be feeling pretty complimented and flattered by it.  Admittedly, I'm kind of weird that way, so…

      But I do understand the approach and thoughts behind it of staying away, too.  Nowadays, it seems like people will sue over every little thing (Not to say it does happen, but with news and stuff, it has that stigma)...  And no author (I hope) wants to be accused of plagiarizing, even without that knowledge.  It does wonders for a career if that happens, I hear.
