Help me fannish friends.  You're my only hope!

I have to do a presentation in my class tonight about Henry Jenkins' Convergence Culture, and I wanted to talk a little about Jenkins' role as a fandom scholar, as a potentially divisive figure, how his work has evolved, etc.  And I am trying-- believe me when I say I have searched the Internets far and wide-- for that quote from Textual Poachers that half of fandom has posted on their blogs.  Only, of course, the one time I actually need it is the one time I can't find it anywhere.

Help me!  What is the quote from Textual Poachers everyone loves?  You know, the one about how fans are creating a folk tradition in a time where the folk tales are all owned by corporations, or some shit.  What exactly does he say there?

Thanks, love, kisses, &c.

Fanfiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by folk. -- Henry Jenkins

Is that the one you're looking for? It's on Sam's fanfic blog.
