The list was created in an effort to circumvent AOL's prohibition on uploading X-Files fanfic after 20th Century Fox Television's request to pull copyrighted materials. Since fanfiction is a gray area as far as copyright is concerned, AOL decided to "play it safe" and prohibited X-Files fanfiction as well. (Despite this, they still allowed Star Trek fic in their public libraries.)
The EMXC worked exclusively through email, with each story sent individually as an email attachment. 3-5 emails were sent everyday except Sunday, not including list business, with an average of 30 emails per week.
Every week (usually Sunday or Monday), a story schedule was mailed that listed what would be sent on any given day of the week. The schedule included Title, Author, and parts to work and also included a tentitive title list for the upcoming week.
Welcome aboard the EMXC (E-Mail Xfiles Creative)!!!
EMXC PROCEDURES & POLICIES
The E-Mail X-Creative (EMXC) is a private group run via email. It was formed in the fall of 1994 in protest to AOL's prohibition on uploading X-Files fanfic after 20th Television's request to pull copyrighted materials. Since fanfiction is a gray area as far as copyright is concerned, AOL decided to "play it safe" and prohibited X-Files fanfiction as well. (A blatantly unfair measure because they still allow Star Trek Fic in their public libraries.)The EMXC used to be manually based off AOL but has since moved to YahooGroups after new software was installed at AOL to detect Bulk E-mailers. The EMXC is now an announcement list on Yahoo Groups, therefore, you can not post directly to the list yourself.
