Fansplaining: Copyright Brainworms is the 142nd episode of the meta podcast Fansplaining.

Creator's Intro

"In Episode 142, “Copyright Brainworms,” Elizabeth and Flourish try to get at the diseased intersection of creativity and the law in the U.S.: our broken copyright system. Spurred by conversation around The Great Gatsby coming out of copyright, topics covered include transformative collaboration on TikTok, the Ratatouille musical, fannish feelings amongst pro creators, and what strange impulse leads people to describe God as the “copyright owner” of the universe."[1]

Some Topics Discussed


Reactions & Reviews

"this @fansplaining episode about (among other things) how non-fanfic spaces internalize the concept of copyright as a constraint for creativity is a must-listen/read for authors tbh"[2]
