My two cents.

I've always considerd fanfic a bit dodgy in the sense of messing with someone else's art in general, but only a bit as there's a lot of well-applied creativity out there (modulo Sturgeon's Law) and it's the only way to get new material for old genres. That said, anyone basing their fanfic off a body of work that is still a work in progress has no grounds for complaint when the real author(s) of the work establish canon at odds with their fanfic.
