Your Permission Needed

In New Zealand, and I think Australia has one too, we have a magacine called NetGuide wich is published once every month and has a page devoted to blogs. I was wondering If you guys would like me to submitt this blog and the links to all our blogs to them? I didn't want to just send mine in cause it is nothing special but everyone's together is. So what do you say, yes or no?

I don't mind, as long as we don't get spammed.

I say yes, definitely.

And why does Gary assume we are all in debt? Jag!

Cool! And what about the Star Wars Insider magazine (official fan club mag)? Anyone ever submit this little "project" to them?

You don't think Lord von Lucasensteinendoodlemunchenkopftendespitzenspoot will come in and shut all of us down?
We aren't official canon!!

Quibecca,

I think most of us can categorize our blogs as parody, whether we actually view it that way or not. As such, we should be protected under Fair Use. Besides, look at all those fan films out there that use the characters.

Also, the Lucas people have been pretty lenient when it comes to online fan-fiction. I think they realize how vital the online community is for keeping the franchise alive.

The only time I've heard of them taking legal action is when the work interferes with their marketing efforts. For intance, there was someone who took the actual trailer for episode 3 and sub-titled it in 1337. They forced that person to take it down.

I've posted about my blog in the forum on StarWars.com months ago. Nothing's happened to me since then.

I was thinking, maybe the Survivor blog would be better to submit than the SWU blog?

Of course, I think everybody's individual character blogs should be submitted also.

Just a thought.

I'm with Billyoda.
The Survivor Blog is some of our finest mayhem! And those who we have lost along the way *sob* will still have links on the site. Groovy bunnies, man.
