Lee Goldberg is a professional author who is outspoken in his disapproval of fanfiction.[1] He insists that his writing of tie-in novels is very different from fanfiction [2] and that fanfiction is "of course" illegal.[3]

Some fans, when discussing Goldberg, will elide his name, for example as "L** G*ldb*rg." This is to keep Mr. Goldberg, an infamous ego-googler, from finding the discussion and jumping in to flame the participants.

Some fans find him hilarious.
