Yesterday, we asked you to take part in a short survey about copyright law. (If you haven't done it yet, please do! And tell your friends to, too!) Today, as Copyright Week draws to a close, we want to focus on copyright and free speech.
All around the Internet today, you can find discussions of "21st Century Creators." We think there are no better examples of 21st century creators than fans! Fans have long been in the vanguard of creating new kinds of work, using new technologies to express themselves, and popularizing new platforms for sharing creative work. But how much do fans and fan creators actually know about copyright law -- the law that surrounds almost everything that fans do? OTW Legal wants to know. Your answers will help us serve the fan community, advocate for fans, and answer your questions about the law.
The Organization for Transformative Works is now looking for Open Doors staff, Translation volunteers, and TWC (Journal) volunteers.
