    Question Fansite development from people who have them, & your exp with infringement possibs

    Is there anyone out there who has a Stargate Fan site, that has received a Cease and Desist order from Orrick (legal reps of MGM)? What did you do? Did you feel singled out, when a site such as we are currently on now (Gateworld) has done such wonderful work and continues to operate?

    Are there things to do and not to do other than the disclaimers that MGM doesn't endorse/not affiliated with/strictly non-profit, fan work aiming to be of most complimentary kind, etc?

    Opinions and experiences HIGHLY sought after, as our site appears to have received one such letter and to say the least, it has us concerned.

    well everyone, we did start researching into Fair Use, and Transformative works vs Derivative works, and therein may lay our salvation.

    Please do feel free to post if you would like to share...
