Re: Why hasn't CBS or Paramount just taken over a fan series or two?

I have a really dumb question to ask; why hasn't CBS cracked down on fan films?
Fanfilms are the new fanzines. Begrudging acceptance of their existence... because they benefit the parent production in the longterm. So long as no one profits from them, or deliberately rips off the fans, fan productions are tolerated because they are seen as many people's introduction to the franchise. The unique successes and benefits of ST fanzines have been acknowledged in Paramount publicity materials to the media since before TMP.

Lucasfilm tried to close all "Star Wars" fanzines in the late 70s, and it was counter productive in the longterm.
