A terrific epigram for the state of copyright today:
Luminosity is the best fan that shows like Friday Night Lights, Highlander, Farscape, and Buffy ever had—but she can’t use her real name in this interview for fear that their producers will sue her.
She goes on:
How do vidders find one another?
I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you—no, seriously, this is a highly contested issue within the vidding community. Even though we believe our work is legitimate and transformative art, a lot of vidders prefer to stay out of the spotlight until the legal situation is clearer.
Having to hide under pseudonyms, meet in secret, share in the shadows - copyright law has brought us to a pretty place.
The whole interview is worth reading.
