Fan Art: Inspiration or Copyright Infringement?

Summit Room 3

Fan art are works created by fans of a work of fiction and are often derived from characters in the latter. There is a thin line that separates when a fan art is merely “inspired” by the original work or when it is copyright infringement. This is a growing trend specially from younger community of artists.

The task of enlightening us on the ramifications of fanart has been given to this duo of international experts who have lectured on and have co-authored numerous publications on this topic.
