Description
How To Debate Clueless And Uninformed People About Transformative Works, or El Tango de Roxanne - Heidi, Rachael Vaughn - You see them on Twitter and tumblr and wordpress all the time - not as much on LJ or DW, though. People who are convinced that they know everything about fanfiction and fanart and wrock and fan films and how they're each a copyright violation through and through. They're wrong, but how do you debate them? Learn about the legal, ethical and cultural arguments that you can make in comments, reblogs and even 140-character tweets (with hashtags), discuss the legal foundation upon which the doctrines of Fair Use and Transformative Works exists, and learn why nobody can hold a copyright in the concept of a wizarding school - or a dark-haired young wizard with glasses.
