Amazon is going to offer a platform to publish fan fiction, though licenses they establish. Some Warner Bros properties have already been picked up and more are on the way. This could end up being a pretty big deal if amazon manages to get licensing for enough of the right properties, but it also has a few hurdles, which I'll get to.
Here is the Press Release:
Get ready for Kindle Worlds, a place for you to publish fan fiction inspired by popular books, shows, movies, comics, music, and games. With Kindle Worlds, you can write new stories based on featured Worlds, engage an audience of readers, and earn royalties. Amazon Publishing has secured licenses from Warner Bros. for Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, and The Vampire Diaries, with licenses for more Worlds on the way.
