When Has showed me the link, my immediate thought was: Your ass is gonna get sued!
My immediate thought now: Yup, you’re still gonna get your ass sued!
Has – Update: It looks like Lady Sybillia has either got a strongly worded cease and decease letter from Stephanie Meyer’s and her publisher’s lawyers, or the backlash from Twilight fans have made her realised she cant profit on a published author’s work.
But it looks like she’s canning the whole idea or will actually post the whole thing for free. She should have done the latter in the first place, and its not like other authors haven’t written fanfiction before. But to profit from something like this is going to stick at peoples’ craw, plus it goes against the whole fandom thing. Fanfiction is written for fans by fans, and you don’t ever profit from it. Although I am not a fan of the Twilight series, fans shouldn’t take advantage of something they have no right in profiting on. However I have a funny feeling that similar cases will prop up in the future especially for popular series like Twilight and Harry Potter.
