Fan Film: "Severus Snape and the Marauders"
#1
I have a standing invitation to do an interview in connection with this fan film. My work schedule has prevented that from happening but I'm going to try to follow through.

Here is the movie.

Isn't this a problem with copyright?

Copyright only protects the expression of an idea. Fan films exist in a shadowy nether region and they probably exist mostly because of goodwill from copyright holders. But to be on sound legal footing to stop a fan film production you probably have to base your arguments on trademark usage. I'm not sure any of the characters are trademarked. I'm not that well-versed with HP legal issues.

The production company behind this film, Broad Strokes, also produced 2013's "The Greater Good", which was the fan film about young Dumbledore and Grindelwald.
