Fan Fiction = 33% content around books

So apparently Annie Proulx gets a lot of manuscripts sexxing up Brokeback Mountain and she's annoyed.  According to "Bill Tancer–an online intelligence agent", Galley Cat got the following quote:

There's no way to stop people from interacting with your content. You can ignore or embrace it … to complain about it isn't going to make it better. Fan fiction makes up 33 percent of all content revolving around books."

I don't know what an online intelligence agent is or what "content revolving around books" exactly means, but I think the message is that fan fiction isn't going away no matter how much it irritates the author.
