In 1999, AleXander's Transcripts were removed from the Slayer's Fanfic Archive, following a C&D from Fox. According to SFA admins, "as per the legal requirements of 20th Century Fox, the Episode Transcripts for Buffy the Vampire Slayer© have been shut down and removed. We hosted these transcripts for nearly 3 years, and will miss them, but law is law."  The removal of the transcripts resulted in a petition to have them restored. 
This fan campaign was ultimately unsuccessful but AleXander's plight and the resulting fandom outrage did raise awareness. An article in the magazine Reason, entitled Copy Catfight: How intellectual property laws stifle popular culture referenced AleXander's Transcripts as an example of the conflict between IP rights and the creative expression of fans.
