Sorry, I apparently forgot to change tabs when I copied and pasted.
I'm honestly not really sure what to make of this idea. It just seems kind weird to me that they would sanction fan fic like this, but I guess somebody must have decided it was worth it to make some money off of it.
Scalzi brings up some good points there. It is a little unnerving that companies can get the rights to everything in the books without actually paying the writers. Not to mention the effect this could have on licensed tie-ins.
