Fansite Forum Copyright Laws

Post by catstop on September 3rd 2010, 12:38 am

Hello, I'm a Wikia wiki admin for a TV show and the forum feature is terrible. I was recommended by a friend to Forumotion. I was looking at stub articles on the wiki and I noticed a disclaimer Wikia automatically adds saying that all copyrighted images and names fall under the "creative commons act" with Wikipedia making them legal. So - if Wikipedia is what allows my wiki to be legal and not in any violations - what about a forum? Does anyone know if a non-licensed fan sites are legal or at least allowed? Can I have a fan made - fan ran forum on a TV show legally? Does the creative common law cover forums also? What about US Fair Use Copyright law 107? Does Forumotion have a blanket licence policy for PRODUCTIONS IG? I know that they actively protected the franchise on Youtube, but what about on fan sites? Thanks - Ginger.

You are thinking way too much about this. You can make a forum about anything with any name you want as long as it follows the ToS.

Also, ForuMotion is based off of the French ForumActif, so the laws aren't written to meet US standards.

TOS

Post by catstop on September 3rd 2010, 12:50 am

But the TOS says "no copyright infringement". If I'm using copyrighted terms and images without permission - could this be counted? The reason why I'm doing this much is I already have multiple starting pages (over 300) that I'm going put a Copyscape on. If I get banned for violation of TOS I loose all of my starter pages and can't re post them anywhere else. P.S. This is also a Japanese TV show Thanks - Ginger
