Recently, Hasbro has gone on the offensive against fanworks, getting Friendship Is Witchcraft pulled from YouTube and cease-and-desisting Fighting Is Magic. While legally they can do this, morally they don’t have a leg to stand on.
So, I’m boycotting Hasbro, and I invite you to join me. From this point on I will not buy any products manufactured by Hasbro or their subsidiaries, including Milton Bradley, Parker Brothers, Playskool, Tiger Electronics, Wizards of the Coast, and Avalon Hill. I intend to use any money I save by doing this to support fan creators, and I will maintain this boycott until Hasbro:
- Makes a public statement that fanworks are not a form of piracy and apologizes to the fan creators who they have shut down.
- Retracts any cease-and-desist orders against fanworks.
- Agrees not to treat fan creators as pirates in the future.
If you agree with me and wish to join the boycott, please help spread the word by linking and reblogging this post.
