WTF: Amazon is going to see legal fan fiction

I just stumbled across this story on IO9 today.
Apparently Amazon has started a new program that will allow them to legally publish fan fiction based on specific IPs that they have bought the rights to. They will pay royalties to both the writer and the IP owner.
Right now they only have rights to Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, and The Vampire Diaries, but it says that they are attempting to get rights to more stuff, including movies, TV shows, games and music.
Right now it doesn't affect Trek, but it's still pretty big news in the fandom world, and I thought it would be worth discussing her.
