Hannibal Meme: Three Relationships [3/3]
Do you want to be alone? I don’t want you to answer that. I just want you to think about your answer. I want you to know that I don’t want you to be alone, not now and not ever.
These two were goddamn amazing in that episode.
I’m with Scalzi on this.
I was going to link Scalzi’s article myself. It’s a good one.
OTW Fannews: Collective action
Copyright overreaches are a common problem, but it will take collective action to bring it to a halt. Read on for one way you can help if you’re in the U.S.: http://bit.ly/Z0cQic
SEATTLE—(BUSINESS WIRE)—May. 22, 2013— (NASDAQ:AMZN)—Today, Amazon Publishing announces Kindle Worlds, the first commercial publishing platform that will enable any writer to create fan fiction based on a range of original stories and characters and earn royalties for doing so. Amazon Publishing has secured licenses from Warner Bros. Television Group’s Alloy Entertainment division for its New York Times best-selling book series Gossip Girl, by Cecily von Ziegesar; Pretty Little Liars, bySara Shepard; and Vampire Diaries, by L.J. Smith; and plans to announce more licenses soon. Through these licenses, Kindle Worlds will allow any writer to publish authorized stories inspired by these popular Worlds and make them available for readers to purchase in the Kindle Store.
Amazon Publishing will pay royalties to both the rights holders of the Worlds and the author. The standard author’s royalty rate (for works of at least 10,000 words) will be 35% of net revenue. As with all titles from Amazon Publishing, Kindle Worlds will base net revenue off of sales price—rather than the lower, industry standard of wholesale price—and royalties will be paid monthly.
In addition, with the launch of Kindle Worlds, Amazon Publishing will pilot an experimental new program for particularly short works—between 5,000 and 10,000 words. For these short stories—typically priced under one dollar—Amazon will pay the royalties for the World’s rights holder and pay authors a digital royalty of 20%.
i spat out my coffee.
GUYS THEY’RE COMING FOR OUR FANFICTION.
finally we can make money off our j2 aus without find and replacing the names first
Amazon is forbidding porn and Crossovers. Which makes me think they don’t actually know what fanfiction is.
Also, be warned, parts of TOS include publishing rights for the life of the copyright, and the rights holders for the world are allowed to use your stuff elsewhere without further compensation to the author. So, your fic could wind up in an episode, but you’ll never be paid/credited for it.
