"I Don't Own Anything so Please Don't Sue": Fanworks and the Law

Saturday 01:15 PM to 02:00 PM

Fanfiction and other fanworks let fans play in worlds we love, expand or improve canon, and build communities - but does copyright law understand fans? And how do fans understand and, potentially, improve the law? This panel explores Canadian and US copyright law's intersection with fanworks. The panelist is a PhD student at McGill and a volunteer with the Organization for Transformative Works Legal Committee.
