Transformative ‘Permission’

Something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, but never could figure out how is to make sure that, should anyone desire so, my fan fiction is open for further transformation. But this post by general_jinjur finally put me on the right track.

Not that anyone needs my permission to create a transformative work based on my fiction, of course! But just in case there is any doubt, I’m in the process of adding the following statement to my fic journals and archives.

Transformative Works
All my stories are fair game for further transformative work, including, but not limited to: podfic, remixes, sequels, meta, reviews, and commentaries. You do not have to ask in advance, but please credit me for the part of the work that I did, and, if possible, please let me know if you get a chance.

And to celebrate, I signed up for [info]dvd_commentary, if anyone is interested.

    That’s a point I feel very strongly about (though, I’ve been feeling strongly about it sitting in my corner and being silent). So I guess this is a good chance to add a similar note to my fic.

      Heh, yes, I’d been thinking about it for a while too, but never really spoke out about it. Feel free to steal the note!

        Will do! It makes sense to have a clear statement concerning these matters!
