Intellectual "Property," Laws and Rights
Over on Making Light, Teresa has posted a terrific article relating to the fanfic kerfuffle currently making the rounds of the genre provinces of blogistan. Eric Flint points to some nineteenth century speeches that help but all of this into context, and a self-professed UK lawyer posts some fascinating arguments about whether fanfic is "illegal," and explains the difference between "laws" and "rights." Really interesting stuff.
