the internet is serious business
In case you missed it, Smash Pictures has made a Fifty Shades of Grey
porn parody. Why did they need to make a porn parody of something that is already erotica? Well, because Universal Pictures has licensed the movie rights to Fifty Shades of Grey
for their own movie adaptation, but planned as rated NC-17. The smaller studio was originally countersuing, but has just dropped its suit.
Which is good news for folks who write and enjoy fanfiction. Or for everybody who posts anything online, really, because their counter argument was that since Fifty Shades of Grey
was initially publicly posted online as Twilight
fanfiction, it was automatically part of the public domain.
