Fans and Paramount and Pushing Back

from The Temple of Trek Revival Hymnal #2 (1986): "HE'S GOT THE WHOLE OF STAR TREK IN HIS HEAD" (filk to the tune of "He's Got the Whole World in his Hands" --"Paramount takes Star Trek to the Bank. Paramount takes Star Trek to the Bank. Paramount takes Star Trek to the Bank. Because they own what's in Gene's head."

A fan in 1998 commented: "Just remember: Paraborg may hold the copyright but we still own our imaginations!"[1]

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,
