So I finished reading this article from Wired about the Japanese Doujin Market.

http://www.wired.com/techbiz/media/magazine/15-11/ff_manga?currentPage=1

I get the jist of it; Copyright laws are more laid back in Japan then here in the sue-happy United States.

So what I don't seem to understand is how at conventions/over the internet artists can make prints of copyrighted characters as fan-art and not get their shit pushed in. But if someone tried to sell a doujin of their own including copyrighted characters [which is really just more fan-art with fanfiction writing.] The lawyers might jump through their windows at night. Could someone just technically create/sell doujin w/copyrighted characters and just say "Hey buddy, its just fan art for the consumers?"

old shit is old.
