H2O #146: In Which We Discuss the Axanar Settlement

banner_h2o_oct2016

Alec Peters is calling it a victory. But is it?

Word came out last week that CBS and Paramount had reached a settlement with Peters and Axanar Productions in the copyright infringement lawsuit. Just days before they were set to go to trial, they issued a joint announcement that a bargain had been put in place. Axanar had to admit to overreaching with their original production, but they can still move forward as long as they stay within the new official guidelines from CBS.

We take a look at what’s public about the deal and discuss what it could mean not only for Axanar, but for fan films in other franchises moving forward.
