Fan Fic for sale on Amazon and B&N
I was looking around at Trek books for Kindle and Nook, and I came across a bunch of what appear to be fan fics for Kindle and one for Nook. I'm confused by this, because I thought it was illegal to profit from fan fics? Now, I really don't mean to get anybody in trouble here, but I was just shocked to see major retailers selling fan fics, and I was wondering about the legality of them doing it. And if it is something that isn't supposed to be happening, then I figured it would be best to bring it to somebody's attention.
