As soon as Fan Art hits the printers and is sold at cons--Paramount's Death Soldiers will start marching! They Police this stuff, that's what happened to zine sales at cons...
And the problem is?

Companies pay CBS good money for the licenses to the Star Trek property and it's CBS' job to protect the market.

The tech fans are free to continue they just can't sell their work.
The thing is, as I've said before, the Star WARS universe is more flexible and George Lucas lets fans be fans...
Paramount, on the other hand, acts like a big dick to fans because they expect a cut of everything, no matter how small and petty...
Let's see how that works with Disney in charge.

Was Lucas that loose with folks violating his IPs?
