2004

I don't know about any copyright related incidents with regard to fanfic, but Yaoi Germany had a run-in with the agency for the protection of minors (Jugendschutz) in 2004. I think a father complained about something his child read in the archive and they had to implement strict rules. That caused a bit of an uproar because most people who posted their fanfic there were minors and some of the offending stories were written by minors. In the end, they found a solution Jugendschutz agreed with. They banned pornography and explained in detail what would be considered pornographic, but they continued to allow sexually explicit material which can only be accessed between 9pm and 6am (UTC+1). You don't need to be logged in to access the stories. [9]

Fan Fiction Archives in Germany

In 2004, according to frogspace in the comments on a post on otw_news:

I don't know about any copyright related incidents with regard to fanfic, but Yaoi Germany had a run-in with the agency for the protection of minors (Jugendschutz) in 2004. I think a father complained about something his child read in the archive and they had to implement strict rules.

You don't need to be logged in to access the stories. [28]

Animexx.de, a German site, according to frogspace in the comments on a post on otw_news:

I just checked Animexx.de (90,000 stories) and I think they are banning pornographic material too and have some kind of (not entirely secure?) age verification system for accessing adult material. [29]


FanFiktion.de, a German site, is dealing with similar issues. According to frogspace in the comments on a post on otw_news:

The owner of FanFiktion.de (40,000 stories) is currently discussing the possibility of allowing pornographic material if you are willing to pay for a secure method of age verification to get access. I'm not sure where he sees the line between adult and pornographic and I feel very, very uncomfortable with this approach. (Never mind that I don't trust his motives because he is proud that he's making money with his archive and adding a pornography corner feels like just another money making feature that is supposed to bring in the crowds.)
