A variant is sometimes used by fans who roleplay as fictional characters on social media such as Website/{{Twitter}}; notes in the profile such as "RP non-canon account" prevent confusing them with official {{Character Blog}}s.

If I owned ''Ace Attorney'', ''AceAttorneyInvestigations 2'' would have been released in the United States already. And if I owned ''Ed, Edd n Eddy'', I wouldn't be wasting my time on a fanfiction and I would actually be animating it.\\

* In one ''MythicalDetectiveLokiRagnarok'' fic, the author exclaims that her attempt to claim legal ownership of the [[Myth/NorseMythology Norse Gods]] resulted in her brother's car being blown up and her getting sued in multiple dead languages. Oh yeah, and the original mangaka's characterizations don't belong to her either.

In fact, stating you know you are violating copyright can make the situation ''worse''. Copyright law has one level of damages for standard infringement, but triple damages for 'willful infringement', which apply after you have been told you are violating copyright, and you keep distributing copies anyway. It is possible that stating you know you're violating copyright could make you ''start'' at willing infringement, if anyone wanted to sue. (On the other hand, the disclaimer also implies you think this is legal, so, paradoxically, it might not be 'willful infringement' at all.)

Copyright For one thing, admitting you know you are violating copyright makes it much harder to claim later that you didn't realise the work was copyrighted.

* The author's note at the end of the first chapter of ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3831182/1/Masks "Masks"]]'' reads thus:
-->Disclaimer: I do not own the show 'Danny Phantom' and I am making no profit off of this story other than my own self-gratification.\\
\\
Quotes in the story are excerpted from 'I am a Pencil', written by Sam Shore. It is a story about a teacher, his kids, and their world of stories. I don't own that either, but I do own a copy of the book and helped myself to one of the better sections. Lancer needed something to read and I figured a book about teaching kids to write would be… appropriate.
