Brand experience is already 'transmedia,' but the opportunity with media convergence is to make it a coordinated story-based experience designed for audience participation.  Narrative = cognitive coherence and participation = stakeholders.

The Fifty Shades Factor: Amazon Gives Fanfic Authors A Shot At A Publishing Payday With Kindle Worlds | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Chris Baker:  "Recognizing that the world of fan fiction has produced a bona fide blockbuster, Amazon is now turning fanfic from a grey market to a sanctioned revenue opportunity with Kindle Worlds."

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

A new initiative from Amazon called Kindle Worlds, introduced yesterday, is offering fanfic authors a cut of the sales when their works are published through the program. Amazon’s first partner in this project is Alloy Entertainment, a division of Warner Bros TV Group, which is providing the licenses to the franchises Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and The Vampire Diaries.

 

Very interesting indeed -

Are fan fiction and fan art legal?

Are fan fiction and fan art legal? | Machinimania | Scoop.it

Lauren Davis: "Fan fiction and fan art are both enormous components of our popular culture [...] But, sometimes creators, publishers, and studios claim that works of fan art and fan fiction violate their copyright. So is that Supernatural fanfic you're working on legal, or should you worry about the lawyers coming a-calling?"
