Fan Generated Content on the Internet

Here are the slides from my presentation to the Chicago Bar Association’s Cyber Law and Data Privacy committee on February 17, 2009 entitled “Fan Generated Content on the Internet.”

I talked about the Harry Potter Lexicon case, including the changes to the book which were made in order for it to be publishable. Then, we discussed different forms of fan-generated content on the Internet. I framed the discussion by providing examples of fan content made by people who (like me) are fans of the Joss Whedon TV show “Firefly” and the movie “Serenity.”

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments!
