    What is the hubpages policy on fanfiction?

    If you use the names and setting from the source material, does it count as copyright infringement even if the actual story is original.

    I don't really know... The only places I have personally seen fanfiction on are Fanfiction.net, Deviantart.com, and Quizilla.com. I would play it safe and not post fanfiction here. Get a Devianart account and post them up there if you'd like. I have one and the community is pretty good and there are a lot of fanfic writers there.

    The names/characters and settings/worlds ARE copyright protected. Which is why fan fiction and fan art can be a touchy subject.

    I would not post fanworks on HubPages, but definitely go to Fanfiction.net because they're used to handling copyright issues (several authors have pulled stories based on their published works) plus you'll already have the audience; fans go there exclusively for fanfics! ^^
