Organization for Transformative Works membership drive
It’s OTW membership drive time—supporting the coders and servers that provide the Archive of Our Own, and Fanlore and Transformative Works & Cultures, and Vidding History, and legal projects like a DMCA exemption for vidders. I love the Archive (and eagerly await the return of tag filters!), and I want to help it grow. Though fandom cultures are largely, and necessarily, informal, the OTW provides a space for policy/legal advocacy on behalf of fan creators as well as nonprofit preservation and access projects in an increasingly commercialized online world. I can’t lie though, a significant reason I’m donating now is also to get a kudos bottle. Please join me and donate!
