Fan Art Law

t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art
My KnightYour presence is the strongest armour,More Like This
Your smile makes any situation calmer.
Your protectiveness is the greatest shield,
Your love is the foundation in which our relationship builds.
Your heart is the sword that slays away the pain,
Your sincerity is the horse dashing across the plains.
You're the knight who saved me from being lonely,
You're my love, my one and only.
