Licensing · 6:28am Jun 13th, 2018

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.

Working on a new story · 7:31pm Nov 24th, 2018

At long last, I've started working on my next story.
The scope of it surprised even me. While it is comparatively small, my perfectionism and obsession drive me to dig into tons of material for the sake of pumping out a few lines. World-building and analysis are my long-time passion, but world-building must stand on firm factual ground to maintain suspense of disbelief. It must be believable to become truly immersive, and that is not as easy as one may think.

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.

Our Ability to Create Memes, Videos, or Write Stories is in Extreme Danger!!! · 8:46pm Nov 24th, 2018

I'm not sure that we can do anything to fight this in eroupe, but it's still important to note how people's rights to make creative things. article 13 recently passed in eroupe, and is about to go into affect, if it does it will serioulsy damage our ability to create pretty much anything. Even something as simple as a meme or a fan song. This will come over here and affect us in the states if it doesn't stop soon. So please, spread the word and help us keep our nerdy, fandom stuff. Help us keep

Signal Boost: Potential Badness. · 5:06am Jun 22nd, 2018

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.

Welp. I guess I'm done. · 6:51pm Sep 12th, 2018

It's been a good ride, y'all. But today, Articles 11 and 13 of the EU Copyright Directive passed with no amendments. We're likely about to see a massive purge of user-generated content if it even has a 'risk' of violating copyright due to the implementation of bots and algorithms meant to delete anything that 'could possibly' violate copyright in an attempt to keep the now-liable web platforms that host our content safe from lawsuits.

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.

This is bad, guys. · 10:16pm Jun 11th, 2018

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.

Betrayal in the Bundestag... · 7:16pm Apr 4th, 2019

The german parliament voted an election about the german government's stand on the copyright reform down which means that it goes directly to the council. The SPD betrayed us. Told us they were against it, voted against it in the parliament and suddenly defended it now. Sides with the CDU.

We're probably just bucked...

#SaveYourInternet Continues · 8:11pm Mar 28th, 2019

The EU screwed us over for personal gain. Some claim they voted wrong by accident.

Demand a revote by this petition to make them put their money where their mouth is.

We can still have the Council reject the law around April 9th through further waves of protesting.

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.

Remember that EU copyright law from a few months back? Well, if you haven't heard, it was narrowly passed yesterday. But don't go holing up in a bunker with an assault rifle and printouts of your Read Later shelf just yet.

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 Jun 20th, 2018

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.
