Transcript of Otaku, Libraries, and Copyright. Oh My!

Anime fans participate in a huge fan culture outside of simply watching cartoons. They write fan fiction and create fan art. They participate in cosplay (in which they dress up as their favorite anime characters) and they create fan videos. These fan made music videos are called anime music videos or AMV's. The creators of these videos are generally teens. Teens submit their videos online at sites like animemusicvideos.org and to competitions at conventions. They receive feedback and advice from their peers. From this, teens learn video-editing techniques, social networking and skills that they might not otherwise be able to access.
