Why pay a pro when the fanficcers will do it for free.

what's to keep someone from ripping stories from (example) fanfiction.net and selling them?

Amazon . . . will pay royalties to both the writer and the IP owner.
It’s just that Amazon is “finding” the writers and prose by looking at pre-existing fanfic work that hasn’t yet been officially published.
Seems like a no-brainer, no-big-deal to me. But maybe I’m missing something.
