  1. The most insane idea that I know:

     

    "This company bought the rights to the franchise, therefore they determine what is canonical in it."

     

    Seriously, the more you think about this idea, the less sense it makes.

      This isn't in response to any specific development.  I am against the idea that rights holders can change canon, period.

       

      Suppose that Sherlock Holmes was not in the public domain, and that the best mystery author in the world bought up the rights and wrote a book which had an amazing mystery and perfectly extended the character arcs of Holmes, Watson, etc.  It would still be idiotic to say that this author used his legal rights to add to the Holmes canon.
