Product description

Review

'Aaron Schwabach takes readers from Aang to Zorro, exploring the intricacies of copyright in characters and the many ways in which fans respond creatively to existing works, using the characters and situations to tell new stories to themselves and others. His wide knowledge of popular culture and careful examination of existing case law and non-litigated disputes involving fans and authors makes this book a unique resource for those interested in the intersection of law and literature.' Rebecca Tushnet, Georgetown University, USA 'Aaron Schwabach tackles a complex topic with great clarity and not a little wry humour.' Managing Information 'The book's strength is its fairly careful discussion of important cases and controversies in a field where there is relatively little case law.' Times Higher Education 'Aaron Schwabach's Fan Fiction and Copyright is the first book to address the legal issues surrounding " outsider works" and to describe how the law is struggling to adapt to these products of the internet age.' Times Literary Supplement 'Fan Fiction and Copyright is a very useful introduction to a marginal but emerging area of intellectual property law.' Law Library Journal 'Eminently readable and engaging, bringing a depth of analysis that has so far been lacking in other shorter treatments of this issue, and littered with helpful examples and illustrations, the book reaches a typical legal conclusion: fan works probably don't infringe copyright, but, well, it depends. The value in this book, as with most legal analysis, isn't in the answer so much as in the reasoning that gets you there. This book's value in that respect in considerable.' Transformative Works & Cultures
