I wanted to rec two interesting book reviews a friend linked me. The quotes about the books say a lot:

There is no mention of fandom at all, beyond a page-long dismissive mention of the concept of 1,000 true fans, no mention of consumer buy-in, nothing beyond “you parasite.” In a book about digital culture, this is an EPIC fail.


This discussion is the heart of the book for the general reader whose concern is whether she is likely to be legally liable for her behaviour, or conversely, from the owner's perspective, whether the use of her works by fans is likely to constitute infringement. While Schwabach does not provide a detailed fair-use analysis, what matters for most readers is that the conclusion is correct: much fan fiction is legal.
