 Fanart-should it become “mainstream” or stay off the radar?

The last few weeks there have been issues about fanfic writers and artists solicited to enter contests. The contests are designed to generate buzz, but at the expense of the artists losing control of their work.

Also, there is a big problem with the Trek Fan Movie “Anaxar”. CBS (who owns the rights to Trek) have sued to stop the production. Seems the Anaxar crew received so much support through crowd funding it is now seen as a for profit competitor.

Has fandom's passion been gentrified? After fan authors and artists enduring years of ridicule, now it's cool?

Then the theory regarding paparazzi: PR companies "tipping off" paps to generate (or keep) their client in the spotlight.
