Wow...I was reading some of the comments on the Axanar blog - and it never ceases to amaze me that fans feel they are entitled to dictate how a studio should license their IP.

CBS and Paramount are the big bad enemies and NONE of these fans understand that copyrights were being infringed big time. They just don't give a crap.
Am I really the only one on the side of the studios in this case? Am I so old fashioned that the new standard is "take what you want, you deserve it, that no laws or rules or guidelines apply to you?" Am I the last man standing to believe a fan is just a fan and not a part owner of the franchise? That it is MY choice to devote MY time and resources as a fan and I should expect nothing in return?
Here is my view of a fan:
Fan: I love your show.
Creator: Thank you. I can't wait to show you more of the story.
Fan: Looking forward to the surprises.
Here is the real world fan:
Fan: I liked what you did, except for that last part.
Creator: I'm glad you are a fan, wait to see what comes next.
Fan: No, I've supported you since the beginning, you wouldn't be successful if it weren't for me, so do it my way or I stop supporting you....I walk.
