[I'm not sure whether this is the appropriate forum to post in, but I'm willing to post it wherever the mods feel is best] Hello everybody, outside my geeky live as a Star Wars fan I'm a law student (okay, I guess that might be considered equally geeky by some people), and I'm in the middle of writing my thesis on copyright law. More specifically copyright law relating to issues dealing with whether fan activities such as fan sites, fan fiction or fanfilms can infringe on the rights of a copyright holder. So naturally I'd want to exploit my knowledge of all things Star Wars and include examples from real life fans with real life experiences. So if you had a web site, which landed you a cease-and-desist letter from LucasFilm back in the days, or if you feel you're walking a tightrope when writing gen-fic (or slash, for that matter), or if you have first hand knowledge about how LFL treats fanfilm makers, please post in this thread or send me a mail. Even if you just know someone, who has had these problems, post here or send me a mail. Heck, if you have any story at all even remotely related to Star Wars and copyright infringement, please let me know. All responses will of course be treated fairly, and anyone who ends up being quoted in my thesis, will remain anonymous upon request (much like Will Broker did with his "Using The Force"). If you read the post this far, I thank you, as I thank anyone who responds in advance.
