rachelmanija: (Saiyuki: Hermaphrodite Mary Sue)

The introduction I wrote for Project Blue Rose: Human Touch invites fans of the series to feel free to write fic for it, should they so desire, as long as they don't try to profit from it without my permission, use my characters without crediting me, or sue me. I have noticed that other individual authors have explicitly invited or given permission to their fans to do the same.

Does anyone know if any major American publishing house or TV/film production company currently has an official statement that fans are welcome to write fanfic based on its properties for their own or shared enjoyment, so long as they don't attempt to profit financially by it without permission and each work's individual creators have also given permission (or at least haven't forbidden it)?

I wonder if OTW is working on some sort of legal language so that companies can do just that.

I also wonder if such a move would generate goodwill and or even new interest in writing fic (if the works in question didn't already generate a lot), would cause an explosion of suspicion that there was some hidden catch, or have other consequences -- perhaps a massive failure to notice or care!

The poll is funny, but the comments are funnier. Particularly the bits about the egg and the windchimes, Krycek as a mute mermaid, and the surprising plot twist which occurs when I inquire about a notorious X-Files fic, "Oklahoma."
