Copyright Violation Is the Sincerest Form of Flattery

OK, this is a post from the Sith Academy Talk yahoogroups discussion list, by Aspen, shamelessly ripped off because she's got some DAMN good points.

There's some kind of fatal flaw in "The Media"'s thinking that fan tributes are some kind of substitute for the Real Thing. I don't know if it's the copyright lawyers, or the way copyright law is written, or what, but they seem to think that by tolerating fan-created continuations of their work they lose the whole ball of wax.

We, of course, know that's bullshit.

Meanwhile, they spend gazillions of marketing bucks creating "buzz", when they could get it for free by being generous to the fans. Go figure.


[sigh]
