Can Anybody Find Me Somebody To Hate?

I HAD a lead quote for my thesis, and then Doctorow published a messy, ambivalent, very public piece saying The Exact Opposite Thing. Halp?

I need papers or news articles in which people are dismissive about fanfic--not in a 'you molested my character!babies' way, but the other typical bullshit. It's Not Art, Only Useful as a Training Exercise, It's Just Weird, Why Don't You File Off The Serial Numbers, Blah Blah stuff. I KNOW there was a GOLD article about this in the NYT aaaages ago, but I cannot for the *life* of me find it.
