Crossing the Fanfic Line

Writer's Coffee Shop is ostensibly a publisher.  I say 'ostensibly' because no publisher in their right mnd would have a fan-fiction section including fiction based on contemporary series like Bones and Twilight.

There are a lot of fan-fiction sites out there by they wisely stay under the radar and generally non-commerical. They host user uploaded material bur if the heat comes on they can easily just take the site down and walk away.

One entity doing commercial publishing and amateur fan-fiction... well, it's a bad case of worlds colliding. And the fact that the fan-fiction is not being sold for cash money is not the protection than many seem to think it is.
