Makes me almost glad I haven't written any Marvel fic in almost two years.
This "agreement" actually contains the statement that it "does not grant any intellectual property rights" to the work to the author. Doesn't that sort of, in a way, defeat the purpose? I mean, yeah, Marvel's entitled to as much "mine, mine mine" bitching as they please - but what are they really going to accomplish other than alienating fans? Not that it ever stopped them before... ;)
Ah, well. If the Marvel fic community is reduced to a band of pirate-sites, they will survive. *I'll* still go there. But maybe that's just 'cause I like pirates. ;)
Ye gods - I still have to *pack*. I have not done *any* packing. And I have to leave in... *checks calendar* Oh, gods. Eleven days. Eleven days! Ack!
Must go to post office. Must cash grant. Must get money to eat at DexCon and after... must get off lazy butt and go out...
