She doesn't own the RCs, and nor should she solely have the right to write about them. Part of writing for Star Wars is being part of a massive collaborative effort, where no-one has claim over a particular area or character (even if that does lead to the odd... mistake). And while I'd love to class the books in which Traviss kills off my two favourite characters as a 'pointless bit of fanfic', I won't, for precisely that reason.

You are of course free to class it as 'fanfic', but learning to take the good with the bad (of which there is a lot) is all part of being a fan of the EU.
