And if on its own it wouldn't be, would it be if I were to author the disc and create a subtitle track detailing every little change from new, alternate, and extended scenes to even listing what was was cut or censored?

This is a good time to bring this up. The Own the Source Material Rule went through a little revision recently:

http://www.fanedit.org/forums/content.php?609

Quote:If material has been released at no cost to the public via web, broadcast, satellite, promotional disk etc..., and never sold, that material can be incorporated into fanedits. An example of this would be a broadcast that includes deleted scenes never released for sale via media such as VHS/DVD/BD etc.... However, for portions that have been made available commercially, both editor and downloader must own a comparable source. If such material is later made commercially available, then the source should then be owned by whomever possesses the fanedit.

I think that should answer your question.

But if you have any questions about the rule, SEND THAT QUESTION TO AN ADMINISTRATOR VIA PM.

Let's not get into a huge discussion about The Rule in the forums.

"Why?"

Because people will offer interpretations of The Rule that can confuse things and make matters worse.

The Rule is pretty straightforward, but if there are questions, send a PM to an admin.

Thank you, Neg! That actually clarifies a lot.
