I posted a topic about fan 'ownership' here:

The latest issue of sci-fi magazine STARBURST mentioned how, in the 80s, producer Jonathan-Nathan Turner appointed a fan as an unofficial adviser. The Doctor Who Appreciation Society also had a relationship with the production office as did some fanzines.
Not sure that was wise, you know.
In another topic, I talked about how us fans are "passengers in a carriage", but the creative people are the "riders holding the reins". Our host has also mentioned how some would write in to comics believing something they had suggested had been adopted, obviously ignorant of production times.
I think franchises, for the most part, need to tell their story. If we don't like it, we can vote with our feet. For instance, I didn't like the fourth PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN film so didn't watch the fifth. Nor will I bother with any others (it's highly unlikely). But I wouldn't expect POTC to change for me. It's obviously popular with many.
