Chilling Effects Clearinghouse Fan Fiction. When authors write stories featuring characters from other stories, movies or TV shows in new situations or adventures, these works of “fan fiction” (see FAQ: “What is FanFic?”) may run into legal challenges because the borrowed characters, scenes or plots may be protected from unauthorized use under intellectual property laws. Specifically, fan fiction authors could be faced with copyright or trademark infringement claims. This page explains the rights original authors have under copyright and trademark law and gives fan fiction authors information about when their works might infringe those rights and what might happen as a result. Authors can use this information to understand the legal issues involved and to avoid infringement of other’s works while creating fan fiction. We explain two major sources of intellectual property rights which fan fiction authors could infringe.
