22.214.171.124-1: I have created a work of fan fiction which replicates the world and codes of my favourite artist. Can I publish it on social networks?
Fan fiction is generally classed as a derivative work. Even though derivative works themselves are protected in their own right, the author of the pre-existing work retains their rights and can therefore challenge the publication of a derivative work. It is therefore necessary to get permission regarding the pre-existing work before publishing fan fiction on social networks.
