People, DO NOT, under any circumstances, tweet a link to my fic -- or anyone else's for that matter -- to a WRITER or a PRODUCER on the show said fic is for. That is a stupid, stupid plan, not the least of which being that it's A) annoying to them, and B) they CAN'T read fic because it opens them up to legal issues. Just. Don't. They're not there to be harrassed and I understand that I am probably meant to take it as a compliment but I don't. You know what I take as a compliment? A comment reading hey, this was good. But don't tweet. Don't be stupid.

I am saying this now because this apparently happened while I was gone and, as someone who's seen this happen in TBBT fandom and become an ~issue, this shit is not kosher with me.

Oh, gawd. Did this actually happen to you or is it just something you've seen going on? And on what planet would someone consider that to be a good idea?

Just happened. Two days ago. In the NCIS fandom. Not a happy camper.

I know this is serious but I couldn't help but laugh in complete disbelief when I read this, unable to believe that a person actually did this.

I think you and me both need these tee-shirts:

This has happened in other fandoms. Which is why I bothered saying, um, fuck no, don't try this at home kids.

AW. I heard they were making those shirts but I hadn't actually seen them. Perfect.

How do people think this is a good idea?

Seriously, how would you ever think this is a good idea to do?

This is weird and uncomfortable. Why do all the wanky/weird/inappropriate things happen to your fics?

Because I have shitty luck and must write too much. Or something.

You didn't actually do that right? And aren't your tweets protected anyway? Or something.

Waaaaaaiiiiiitttttt, that happened to you? omg, I am sorry. That is just plain awkward and not okay.

Yep. Plus twitter won't let me send her a 'don't ever do that again, dear god' message, so I'm kind of just stuck seething on LJ. Hoping that's a one time thing.

WHY? why would someone think this is a good idea?

As a heart attack. I have no clue. No clue at all. I would just like it to NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN. To anyone.

It would aggravate me less if it wasn't a 'been there, done that' situation, I think. Granted, I was on the periphery but still. We all saw it. We all know better. And ending up in another fandom where that's a problem makes me want to injure someone. Fatally.

I'm going to pretend I haven't read this post.

Or I'll take all my fic off the internet.

Srsly?! Oh bloody hell that's not kosher at fucking all. This makes me a little anxious. I hope it doesn't happen again. Please dumb people everywhere on this planet, use the little amount of brain cells you have at least once in a while. *sighs*

Just out of curiosity, what legal issues are risked if a writer/producer reads fanfiction on the internet?

Date: 2011-03-29 11:27 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dulcedeusex.livejournal.com
Intellectual Property law violations... intellectual property is about protecting ideas... so let's say sly writes some fanfic with a very original plot-point and/or some witty/emo/clever dialogue, whatever... a writer/producer reads it and then incorporates it into a future episode OR expands on her premise but there is enough proof that they used bits and pieces of her original idea. They would be guilty of infringing on [personal profile] slybrunette's intellectual property rights. And she could sue them.
