I'm not saying it's illegal, I'm saying it's bad from a PR perspective. The point was made that if Paramout takes the money and the new season bites, they look bad by association. If they take the money and the new season rocks, they look stupid. Plus, it opens up a huge can of worms as precedent for production companies taking money from outside sources that I'm sure none of them want to get into. Next could be blackmail -- we'll cancel Show X unless you fans raise $500,000. Bad business all around.
