Fanworks are Free Speech Archive of Our Own

swrpu:

Very interesting development. As long as it’s not verbatim copied directly, then technically it is considered “Free Speech” or as they explain it:

Fanworks are the very essence of free speech: Fans saying what they need to say, building community through self-expression. A few years ago, when we asked you to tell us your stories of how fanworks have helped you, you told us powerful stories about how fanworks helped you find your voices, your skills, and yourselves. We used those stories of empowerment and self-expression to help advocate for balanced copyright laws that preserve the relationship between copyright and free expression.
