RMB provides his unique take on the Star Wars fan film controversy.

Writer-producer-director, Robert Meyer Burnett, chimed in with his unique point-of-view on the current fan film controversy involving the Star Wars Fan Film: SHARDS OF THE PAST. You can watch the film here …

The film has generated nearly 7 million views on YouTube and was recently hit with a copyright claim on the music used in the fan film by the Disney subsidiary responsible for owning and managing those copyrights.

So, what does this mean for the fan film-maker? John Campea, host of The John Campea Show (from which this excerpt is taken) reviewed the situation in detail and broke down the Internet rumors against the facts to explain his view that things were not quite as bad as the Internet-outrage machine would lead you to believe. Rob then went one step further, claiming that this entire situation was a big “win” for the filmmaker.

RMB’s experience with Star Trek: AXANAR and the copyright infringement lawsuit brought against Axanar Productions and Executive Producer Alec Peters by CBS Studios and Paramount Pictures makes him uniquely qualified to talk about this issue.
