Licensing · 6:28am June 13th

Oof. Hardcore topic alert! Well, maybe not.

I have noticed a complete and utter lack of licensing on the site, so figured I'd just go ahead and give everyone a heads-up.

All my work is released as is, under a Creative Commons, Attribution + Noncommercial + NoDerivatives (BY-NC-ND) license. If you want to use my work as a basis for your own, feel free to ask me.

Blocked on YouTube · 4:32am Aug 29th, 2016

So I got something of an alarming E-mail tonight. Apparently Hasbro Studios, LLC just blocked the video I made for Elements of Insanity with the lyrics of Twilight's song in chapter-1 set to the tune of Sherclop Pones Pinkie's Brew. Not just some automated claim either, but a manual one, meaning ostensibly some real person looked at my video and decided to get rid of it.

Signal Boost: Potential Badness. · 5:06am June 22nd

Greetings, all.

Nyronus put a post up recently, which details the situation far better than I am likely to here with an update here... but in essence: the EU is considering changing copyright laws such that FIMFiction may not be able to continue as it has.

This is bad, guys. · 10:16pm June 11th

So, I don't know how many of you have heard about the EU's new copyright charter, and I don't know how many of you actually live in the EU (and those in the UK, ya'll still technically there, so you should listen up), but this is bad.

Restrictions Foster Creativity · 8:26pm Jul 5th, 2016

So apparently the Original Ponies the Anthology video got taken down from YouTube because Kayne claimed copyright infringement for the use of his song "Power". The solution? Kazoos.

It happened again! · 5:26pm Nov 3rd, 2016

Well, Youtube copyrights struck again, this time to my Twilestia tribute set to Rod Stewart's Maggie May, which I think is absolutely beautiful song. But alas, because of the damn copyright, I had to switch out the song for a piece of classical music, (The same one I had to use from my Don't Fear the Reaper video a while back.) even when I said the song was used in a parody and I made no money off of it and gave proper credit to the artist.:twilightangry2:

Venting Frustration - Copyright Laws or Monopoly? · 3:06pm Jun 25th, 2016

So, I just got done reading the copyright and fair use laws. Ugh... basically, it's impossible for artists and other creators to turn a profit on their works (fan fiction or fan art) even when it's pretty obvious the "product" is not official. I guess some companies are pretty lenient, but when I can't seel my drawings because, god forbid, some asshole thinks my character is copyrighted -ahem- DA prints reviewer -cogh- by someone who didn't create her.

YouTube messed up again: Help Magpiepony! · 6:05pm May 27th, 2016

Please take a look at this:

If some of you have experience with YouTube and this kind of situation, please help her, because I have no idea what to do in this case but I am very enraged by this situation. "Where's the Fair Use" controversy is bad enough, but THIS SHIT?! :flutterrage:

EU Copyright Directive Still Ongoing · 6:34pm June 20th

Today the EU Copyright Directive which I discussed a couple weeks ago has, unfortunately, taken it's next step into becoming law.

The Good News; I was apparently somewhat mistaken on the timetable and today's vote wasn't the final vote, which means there's still time.

It IS a ghost story - they're ALL made up! · 11:08pm Sep 3rd, 2017

Warner Brothers is being sued over The Conjuring, a series of movies loosely based on the "true story" of Ed and Lorraine Warren and the haunting of a certain house, in what is possibly one of the most amusing lawsuits I've heard about this week.

My case against no lyrics · 11:29pm May 31st

Greetings everyone Thule117 here with a quick little clarification. Now, as some of you may know, I recently posted a blog asking for help with allowing the song lyrics in my story to remain, (I should note that I have deleted them for the time being, but would very much like to see them eventually returned). What I may have failed to do is explain why I think the rules against song lyrics are misguided. Now first I'd like you to read this:

How Do People Who Read Fan Fictions Avoid Copyright Issues? · 3:12pm Feb 22nd, 2017

How Do People Who Read Fan Fictions Avoid Copyright Issues?

This is a question I've had for a while now. How do channels that read fan fictions avoid copyright issues on YouTube? YouTube has a large stick up its butt when it comes to that sort of thing so I am just curious how a lot of channels get away with it.

Fans of Guardian, I Need Your Help · 8:13pm May 29th

Addendum: After much thought, and consultation with fans, I have submitted to taking the lyrics that precipitated this message down after finding a workaround that somewhat addressed my concerns. However, I am leaving this blog up as it still encapsulates my feelings on this matter, and addresses what I believe is something we fanfiction writers should address. In addition I still encourage people to write the moderators and ask that they consider modifying the rules in a manner that will help
