Fans and Paramount and Pushing Back
A fan in 1998 commented: "Just remember: Paraborg may hold the copyright but we still own our imaginations!"A fan in the late 1990s wrote:
- "The Lords' Disclaimer"
- Our Paramount/Viacom, who art in Hollywood,
- Copywrited be thy name.
- Thy profits come,
- Thy royalties be honored,
- In Asia as they are in the "Free World".
- Give us this week our piece of canon,
- And forgive us our fanfics,
- As we forgive the real clunkers you occasionally produce.
- And lead us not into litigation,
- But deliver us from cancellations.
- For thine is the franchise, and the trademarks, and the merchandising,
- For ever and ever,
- Amen.
