Abstract

Self-publishing is the fastest growing segment in a publishing industry, with ever more self-published titles reaching best-seller lists. Although self-publishing phenomenon has been discussed in literary, communication and economic studies, it has not been addressed in legal doctrine. This article maps the legal challenges that self-publishing raises in relation to traditional copyright law notions.

Keywords: self-publishing, copyright, fan-fiction
