Forget the copyright monopoly on Wired

Put short, all fan-created works are safe as they legally fall under fair use (just don't make money off of them, ok?). But when someone issues a claim, the hosting site is required to take down the item in question and banning it. Unless it's altered to an acceptable degree, it can't be re-uploaded.

So yeah, I say some people are too easily scared...
