Archelos has the right of it: I don't have a philosophical or personal problem with fanfic, but I have to tread very carefully with respect to licensing and implied licenses because of the nature of my contract with my publisher.

I could probably work out some kind of Creative Commons license that was agreeable to the publisher under the right circumstances, but I haven't had a chance to discuss it with them yet. The intellectual property is mine and they are granted a limited license to publish certain stories under certain conditions, so they have an interest only in so far as derivative works may "damage" their license to publish. But it can be tricky.

Alas, a "don't ask, don't tell" situation is what usually comes about.
