PostSubject: Star Trek Continues   Fri Sep 09, 2016 4:35 am

I LOVE these fan made shows! I haven't watched this one yet, will probably watch it on TV over the weekend (our TV has youtube). But sadly, these fan made films may be coming to an end. Paramount has issued a bunch of strict rules related to fan made films due to one making a huge profit and allegedly pocketing money. One of the rules is that it cannot make money. Some of the previous episodes of fan made films has included Walter Koenig, George Takei, Nichelle Nichols, Grace Lee Whitney and even Lou Ferrigno as a green Orion slave owner! Now the rules state they cannot use any Trek actors or professional actors. And each story can be no longer than 30 minutes and has to be made in 15 minute shorts. Some of these were already produced before the rules were made but this one was just released. If you are a fan of classic trek I suggest you check out all of these episodes and "Star Trek New Voyages". I believe New Voyages threw in the towel after the new rules and will leave their stuff uncompleted.

These episodes are expensive to make and they fund them thru campaigns raising sometimes over $200,000! Sadly, with the new funding rules it will be hard for them to produce good quality stuff.

CBS and Paramount Pictures are big believers in reasonable fan fiction and fan creativity, and, in particular, want amateur fan filmmakers to showcase their passion for Star Trek.  Therefore, CBS and Paramount Pictures will not object to, or take legal action against, Star Trek fan productions that are non-professional and amateur and meet the following guidelines.

Guidelines for Avoiding Objections:

[list="border: 0px; font-variant-numeric: inherit; font-stretch: inherit; line-height: 16px; font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 16px; margin-right: 0px; margin-left: 0px; padding-right: 0px; padding-left: 0px; vertical-align: baseline; list-style: none; color: rgb(151, 151, 151); background-color: rgb(30, 43, 55);"]
[*]The fan production must be less than 15 minutes for a single self-contained story, or no more than 2 segments, episodes or parts, not to exceed 30 minutes total, with no additional seasons, episodes, parts, sequels or remakes.  

[*]The title of the fan production or any parts cannot include the name “Star Trek.” However, the title must contain a subtitle with the phrase: “A STAR TREK FAN PRODUCTION” in plain typeface. The fan production cannot use the term “official” in either its title or subtitle or in any marketing, promotions or social media for the fan production.

[*]The content in the fan production must be original, not reproductions, recreations or clips from any Star Trek production. If non-Star Trek third party content is used, all necessary permissions for any third party content should be obtained in writing.

[*]If the fan production uses commercially-available Star Trek uniforms, accessories, toys and props, these items must be official merchandise and not bootleg items or imitations of such commercially available products.

[*]The fan production must be a real “fan” production, i.e., creators, actors and all other participants must be amateurs, cannot be compensated for their services, and cannot be currently or previously employed on any Star Trek series, films, production of DVDs or with any of CBS or Paramount Pictures’ licensees.

[*]The fan production must be non-commercial:

  • CBS and Paramount Pictures do not object to limited fundraising for the creation of a fan production, whether 1 or 2 segments and consistent with these guidelines, so long as the total amount does not exceed $50,000, including all platform fees, and when the $50,000 goal is reached, all fundraising must cease.

  • The fan production must only be exhibited or distributed on a no-charge basis and/or shared via streaming services without generating revenue.

  • The fan production cannot be distributed in a physical format such as DVD or Blu-ray.

  • The fan production cannot be used to derive advertising revenue including, but not limited to, through for example, the use of pre or post-roll advertising, click-through advertising banners, that is associated with the fan production.

  • No unlicensed Star Trek-related or fan production-related merchandise or services can be offered for sale or given away as premiums, perks or rewards or in connection with the fan production fundraising.

  • The fan production cannot derive revenue by selling or licensing fan-created production sets, props or costumes.
