A female figure dancing against a blue and pink sky 'OTW Fannews Coming Attractions'


Both the Wall Street Journal and The Global Times wrote about China's approach to fanworks and intellectual property. The Journal reported on Alibaba Pictures' plans to "no longer hire professional screenwriters. Instead it would gather material from online forums and fan fiction writers to compete with each other over screenwriting credit."

Although screenwriters protested, others felt this was the wave of the future. "The rising demand for quality content with a built-in fanbase has driven up the price of such ideas in general, especially popular online fiction that is well-embraced by the country’s young generation."

Whether it’s crowdsourcing fandom, finding out how fans use the Internet, or starting new fandoms, tag you’re it http://bit.ly/22XL71B
