As someone who only writes in fandom and is still writing fanfic, when there are enough hours in the day, I believe there are more complications when writing fanfic which plays in the written word sandbox rather than the TV sandbox.

There have been examples of C&D orders being obtained in TV fandoms but they are very few and far between. They are more common, I believe, in the written world.

I presume the problem with fans writing in say the Harry Potter world or the Greywalker world is that authors are still alive and kicking and writing themselves and there are definite infringements of ownership rights.

As you say Harper, it is very much a situation of keeping your head below the parapet if you do write fanfic whether it is slash or gen.
