In response to the latest fandom kerfuffle...

Author Diana Gabaldon has come out against fanfic in no uncertain terms. So unambiguous, in fact, that she summed up her position here:

"OK, my position on fan-fic is pretty clear: I think it’s immoral, I _know_ it’s illegal, and it makes me want to barf whenever I’ve inadvertently encountered some of it involving my characters."

She's since followed up her initial post with a somewhat amended comment where she admits that she never considered that fanfic comes from love of the original material. How she could miss that, I don't know, but whatever.

Response cut for the typical lengthy rant... )
