  1. I'm only posting this as a new topic because Jan of Jan Animations posted a new video that's basically a send off for Button Mash. I'm not too keen on the song itself but I am a big fan of the original Button's Adventures. I know the legal aspects have been debated ad infinitude but the new video got me feeling nostalgic and wishing that Jan would have been able to finish the actual Button's Adventures sequel. To a certain extent I understand that Hasbro didn't want people confusing fan animations for actual show footage or fans showing up the animation team but considering there are plenty of fan channels that blatantly feature the Mane Six, it just seems a travesty. I hope Jan is successful with whatever new stuff he has planned and also Button's Mom will always hold a special place in my heart. But that's a story for another time.
  2. As you know, I'm a huge fan of PPg and Transformers. So much so that I want to create my own versions of it. Not fan fiction or fan animation. I want to do the Lauren Faust way and make a different version based on each franchise I love. Don't get me wrong, I have tons of original ideas of my own. But in order for me to get a job in the animation industry, I want to put all my passion in all my works. I want to create Sugar, Spice, Nice. A continuation of the original PPG but of course this isn't form a fan animation. I wish for it to be on Cartoon Netowrk some day. Maybe after the reboot coming soon has ended? In my series, the Ppg are teenagers and reunite after being apart for 5 years due to life problems and teenage issues. Now They fight crime and protect Townsville and it's supposed to be darker and more dramatic than the original and I have loads of stories processed. Same goes for Trnasformers, it's been my childhood dream to create a animated series on the Transformers franchise because I loved t shows I grew up with and I have tons of ideas to show about the universe and how I have changed the typical Trnasformers formula and introduce new characters that can change everyone's view on Trnasformers. It's where the Trnasformers need to find the Divine Spark, the power source of Cybertron and the whole universe and it turns out to be inside a teenage autistic girl named Aura and they have to find another way to restore Cubertron and stop the Decepticons from obtaining the Divine Spark, because if Aura dies, the universe will be unstable (I have got more details but we'll be here all day) here, I want to make it more accepting to all genders and age. I want to make a show both men and women can enjoy. But I don't know where to start. Should I make webcomics or should I do my original works first THEN do the others when I pitch them to Cartoon Network? Should I be ashamed that I'm using copyrighted characters and making a remake series based on both PPg and Trnasformers because I have put so much passion and creativity? Will I get blacklisted and cease and desist like JanAniamtioms?! I do have my own ideas and I put as much passion into those as I have for the remake I have planned. But I loved these shows and I want to expand and show these sources material from a new perspective. I want to show how good i can be at creating stories and ideas But I'm scared of getting copyright, I'm worried studios will go cease and desist on me and I fear that all my hard work and effort will go to waste. I don't want to be banned and sued just because I wanted to do unique twists on certain shows I love?! What should I do?!
  3. What I mean is; Out of fear of receiving a Cease and Desist order and a resulting lawsuit, I've been considering shutting down fan projects that I've been working on (all of which are non-profit) . My Timelord Rainbow Dash tumblr is (as the name implies) a combination Doctor Who/FiM ask blog and I am now beginning to question whether it technically falls under 'Fair Use' in copyright law or if I should quit while I'm ahead and delete the whole thing. Fan-art if it looks similar enough to the show (which is one of the reasons I've heard is a potential cause for the Cease and Desist order for Button Mash), then it would probably be best if I avoided creating art as well, despite being in traditional form the ponies (and Spike) can all easily be recognized as who they are intended to be. Fanfiction feels like its in the same area, especially since the site I write for doesn't take too kindly to song lyrics-partial or full-to be used since apparently it's still possible to get sued for works like that. So should I just quit?
  4. Just my rambling two cents on what happened between Jan Animation and Hasbro concerning the My Little Pony Cease and Desist letter. Please let me know what you think.
  5. DHX, the animators behind Lauren Faust's fanmade My Little Pony series Friendship is Magic, have today been hit by a cease and desist order from trademark holder Hasbro. In a press release, Hasbro has stated that DHX's Friendship is Magic series painted their franchise in a bad light. "You kidding? That series had the yellow pony breaking a bear's fucking neck! No way we're letting that be associated with our company!" says Hasbro marketing executive Richard Head. He later added, "Also, get Michael Bay on the phone. Tell him that Transformers 4 needs to have more sexist imagery and racial stereotyping than the other three films did." Fans of the series have rallied in support for DHX, and have pointed out that FiM's content is, quote, "no worse than any typical kid's cartoon." Lauren and DHX have been approached by My Little Pony creator Bonnie Zacherle with an offer to create a new universe to set their cartoon in. Will have more on this story as it develops.
