Sue Profile 004: Fenuella Swan

Fenuella Sarah Jessica Parker Sheen-Swan
When I was still writing my trollfic, I was expecting that all my reviews would, of course, be flame reviews. (I did get a kick out of people getting annoyed over nothing, but the kick got old soon enough when I had to start arguing with people who actually share my personal viewpoint.) However, there is this person who got mad at me over having a fanfic that shares a title with hers.

This is a screenshot of the review:

NeVa.say.NeVa2 says, umm, like, this could be a real good story lol but you stole my title One Less Lonely Gurl is mine, bitch, so back off. I'll only forgive you if you agree to give me some acknowledgement or something. Don't copy people's stuff, right?

Actually, titles are not covered by copyright.

"The good news is that song titles are not copyrightable. The Code of Federal Regulations provides that: “words and short phrases such as names, titles, and slogans” are “not subject to copyright and applications for registration of such works cannot be entertained.” 37 C.F.R. § 202.1(a). Case law confirms this, although at least one case suggests that a title that is completely fanciful and arbitrary, such as “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” might be entitled to copyright protection. However, that does not seem to be an issue here because you have suggested the title is a common phrase. Moreover, because the title is a common phrase, it would not be entitled to copyright protection even if song titles could be copyrighted because in order to obtain a copyright, the work must be original. Therefore, you should not be held liable for copyright infringement for using a song title as the title of your movie. The bad news is your movie title will not be copyrightable either."

I don't think that One Less Lonely Gurl/One Less Lonely Girl is copyrightable because many fanfics have already used this phrase as a title. Justin Bieber has never sued any of us, however, no matter how awful most fanfics with this title are. I did apologize to her over something that isn't my fault at all, then she gave me a rather unexpected positive review on my story, trying her best to back me up despite all the flame comments that my story actually deserves.

Now, without further ado, the Mary Sue of the other One Less Lonely Gurl, Fenuella! She has got to be the most annoying-looking sue I drew so far. Just becose...

Additional Notes on This Character: 

Mary Sue Score: 109... still a Sue.

-Fanfiction 'writer' xXicarlygurlXx posted on her profile that her similarly horrible stories were just a joke, so it's possible that this story is also a joke, considering the fact that Neva is allegedly friends with her.
-If this holds true, then this fanfic is a work of trolling genius. Neva also made a good point about sexism in Twilight (Chapter 3), although her fanfic is still very racist and prejudiced against people with Down's Syndrome.
-This fanfic has got to be one of the funniest badfics I've ever read. Just becose...
