The me-narrated TFiOS box set: http://dft.ba/tfiosboxset The real audiobook not narrated by me: http://dft.ba/-17Qg In which John discusses narrating one version of The Fault in Our Stars audiobook, the unusual and good-hearted conversations with Brilliance Audio that made it possible, how copyright and intellectual property law affected his first novel Looking for Alaska, and why he is so troubled by the SOPA and PROTECT IP bills currently being discussed by the United States congress.

Raise your hand if u are a nerdfighter 🖐🏽

John, this Manbra joke is funny now, but you've gotta look at the bigger picture. Think of Henry. One day, he's going to be in middle school. And middle school is full of little monstrosities that love to make the lives of other people worse. And they also use the internet. And now, you have recorded yourself on the internet saying you're a Manbra. And these middles-school monsters will irrefutable proof to mock Henry about his father being a Manbra. And they can mock your other children as well. And your grandchildren. You've doomed them all to being the descendants of a Manbra.

did you write Paper towns? and the foult in our stars?

You don't want to wage a war against the Nerdfighters. They're very good at fighting... Nerdfighting.
Shea Elliott (2 years ago)
Zander, relax. swf wasn't trying to wage a war against Nerdfighters. swf was actually implying that John Green is one of the best authors of today, meaning, one of the best authors still living. And that's far from trying to start an argument, that's a huge nod to the genius that John Green gives to the world today through the vlogbrothers and his writing. (I know I'm very late in this comment thread, unfortunately I didn't even know about John when this video came out)

It doesn't even make sense that you would have to have a "creative" solution to have two audio book versions.  It's your book.  You should be able to make any version you want and grant permission to anyone you want to do whatever.

Katlyn Mendoza (4 years ago)
Okay so I'm new to the Nerdfighter community and I just read The Fault In Our Stars but I also am starting to read Looking For Alaska but with that I am reading it to my guy friend who has no access to the book, that's not against some piracy or copyright laws is it? I know it's a dumb question but I don't want to do any bad.

Lily Findlay (4 years ago)
Wrote the additional lines to the poem into my hardcopy of looking for alaska. As much as I appreciate that if John were to write it it would breech copy right, I still believe its a beautiful poem, and like the idea that when I re read the book I will be reading it a John first intended.

creative commons is total bullshit. SOPA is needed. "viacom" is not a rich person. It is a company that employs thousands upon thousands of people. "viacom" doesn't matter. what matters is that thousands of people may get the old heave ho if viacom can't protect it's property. THOSE PEOPLE THEN BECOME UMEMPLOYED BECAUSE ASSWIPES THINK THEY CAN STEAL. Seriously - why are smart liberals so effing stupid so often? And frankly edna st. vincent millay estate can ask whatever they want. You raise the money or cut the quote. Can i quote your book with impunity? NO! Christ almighty I hate people who call this stuff censorship...when you just know if their stuff was being stolen they's go ape shit. 
floralirony (4 years ago)
To address your early concern about protecting property and enforcing SOPA because it employs many, I do not completely agree that it is necessarily the better choice. If we were to use John Green's example about his 2004 situation, Looking for Alaska COULD have been better than it turned out to be if he were able to include more from the poem. The literary richness could have deepened which leads to greater insight and usefulness in analysis (allusions). This addition could have led to greater sells, which calls for a higher yield of book production, which hires more people to produce the books (factory workers, drivers, etc.). Jobs would find their way one way or another. With these limitations, you are hindering full potential. I know that this example sounds quite the stretch, but I'm only using it to bring light to another perspective. Now I am not fully aware of all the facts, so I may be wrong in some aspects, but I just wanted to shine light on the other point-of-view.

I thought he was gonna say "Mebra" but that's not much better and then I thought "Zeman" but that sounds a bit too much like semen and long story short man-zebras probably and sadly should not be a thing. D:

I consider this a misleading title, since we didn't get to hear you reading as a young girl. Is really everything in the book a spoiler? Is there nothing in there that wouldn't surprise us?

SmashPotatoe (5 years ago)
Yes...maybe. I'm not sure, but I think you're only infringing copyright, if you try to publish your summary.
musikSkool (5 years ago)
Paraphrase means using different words. If the original sentence was; "In the noonday sun, his chapped lips beckoned the larger of his hats, though at home it slept in silence, for it too had a distaste of the sun." To paraphrase that sentence I would say, "His small hat didn't protect his lips, but his large hat gets sun-damaged." 'Paraphrase' is just a fancy word for 'summary'. I thought copyright only protected exact words. Does that mean school kids wring a summary are infringing copyright?
SmashPotatoe (5 years ago)
For example, Paper whose author is Hank - "John is not evil." (edited from John's paper). However, I'm no expert in this area, so I don't know if there are some weird exceptions, for example, needing an authorization of the original sentence's author to be able to publish a paper with the paraphrased sentence. I'm sorry. I'm not good at english nor at explaining things, so, if you want to know more, you can google "plagiarism".
SmashPotatoe (5 years ago)
I don't know in other literary works, but when publishing scientific papers it is sometimes illegal. For example, Page 1 - I am good. Page 2 - I am not evil. In this case, you're paraphrasing inside the same paper and that's legal. Another example, Paper whose author is John - John is good. Paper whose author is Hank - John is not evil. In this case, you're paraphrasing something from another paper and this is illegal unless you explicitly say that you're paraphrasing John's paper.

Paraphrasing? Is that still legal? Like; "chapter one was about his favorite cat :blah: :blah: :blah:"? And then proceed to, using my own words, basically describe every interaction he had with his cat, though never actually quoting anything word for word.
Alex Graboyes (5 years ago)
Just a point, past John, don't worry about your audio book reading skills, you did great and I enjoyed it. Even the parts that I had...not quite read in your voice whilst reading the book.
