Fanlore defines Fanworks as, "...a creative work produced by one or more fans, generally intended for other fans. A common defining phrase used in fandom is "by fans for fans,"[1] or something similar,[2] though this definition might incorporate other fan activity as well." https://fanlore.org/wiki/Fanwork

Why do we create/consume fanworks works (fanfic, vids, podcasts, etc.) What needs do these works fulfill? Where is the line between copyright and creativity? What role does the individual fandom community that work is created within play? How does fandom as an overall community play a role in these works? How is the perception of fanworks and the definition above evolving?
