Portland actors perform Amok Time in the park, apparently unworried by the public performance right--but extremely concerned that they not be mistaken for unwashed, basement-living "Trekkies." I'd love this story more if the actors didn't feel the need to make the Geek Hierarchy move of assuring everyone that they aren't the kind of fan you ought to make fun of, who knows trivia and collects action figures and can make accurate costumes (that was one's mother's job); this is real acting! I really wish more fans would realize that, culturally, we're in this together: you won't get highbrow respect by throwing the fan next to you under the bus. You won't get it at all, most likely, but looking for it that way is a sucker's game.
Anyway, the copyright hook is obvious, but I doubt Paramount has any interest in suppressing free theater in the park.
