[[folder: Web Animation]]
* While Creator/RoosterTeeth doesn't have such a policy, the fandom for ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' has coined a term called ''"Don't Lewd the Rube,"'' where it focuses on the main protagonist Ruby Rose, who is 16 as of Season 4. The term is open to interpretation, either as a hard ban on any Rule 34 of Ruby, or as a tongue-in-cheek remark.

* Jeph Jacques of QuestionableContent once made a statement that while he's "okay" with other people making images of his characters in sexualy situations, he draws the line at drawing one of his underage characters (Samantha Bean, the daughter of the owner of "The Secret Bakery.") and wishes those that drew Sam naked to "die in a car fire." A paheal commentator summed up the situation:
-->''"And this, Ladies and Gentlemen, marked the birth of the phenomenon we call "Porn Trolling"."''

* A similar case happened with Creator/{{Sega}} and a group of fans that were making a fan game/remake of the ''StreetsOfRage'' franchise. What made the case frustrating was Sega had been informed of the existence of the project by the developers themselves, but didn't take any action (approving or disapproving) until it was finished, at which point they issued a C&D. Unlike the ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' case above, Sega never remade or ported any of their ''Streets of Rage'' games when the fan game was released and the game itself [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes can still be found on various sites on the internet.]]

* Of a sort on Franchise/{{Neopets}}. In the Nickelodeon Kids & Family Virtual Worlds Group games terms of service (which includes Neopets, Website/PetpetPark, {{Nicktropolis}}, and VideoGame/MonkeyQuest), all rights to making derivative works under Fair Use are given up. However, Neopets at the least still has original art, poetry, and storytelling contests, as well as the Neopian Times (which accepts fan comics and stories), all of which have rules that all submissions must follow in order to be accepted (such as NoHuggingNoKissing).

* ''Franchise/ArchieComics'' has banned all Fan Fiction due to the proliferation of Rule34. Partly due to it being almost impossible to censor completely, both fanfiction and fanart still exist on the web. Archie isn't likely to properly enforce their rule unless it's dragged into the public eye or costs them money. Fanfiction.net once had an ''Archie'' section but deleted it due to the ban, though a few ''Archie'' fanfics still exist on the site in other categories.

A fanwork ban can be particularly annoying if you get into a show or a book series ''after'' it officially ended. In the Internet, the first thing that many fans will do after the series ended was look for fan websites or some fanfiction works. If a FanworkBan was in place, these sites will be extremely hard to come by, if they exist at all... It's usually the case that most fans foolhardy or reckless enough to skirt a FanworkBan usually aren't intelligent or dedicated enough to put together a good online fanfic story.

* Back when ''VideoGame/TheSims'' modding community was big, MarvelComics came down on anyone hosting skins of their characters, leading to a near-disappearance of these kinds of skins on the Internet.
