This morning it was announced that CBS has filed a lawsuit against the Star Trek fan film Axanar, trying to force them to cease production. Up until this point, CBS has always turned a blind eye to fan productions, as they are usually produced via crowd funding and released for free. Fan films have become a thriving creative outlet, and it is extremely important that CBS not be allowed to curtail the artistic output of passionate individuals. This lawsuit has enormous implications for the future of fan films as a whole. I encourage you to sign this petition, showing our solidarity for fan films and ensuring they are not blasted into oblivion. axanar
