AMVs are "direct infringement" but fan fiction is a violation of derivative work rights.
The basic thinking going into fan videos is thus: if it whets the audience's appetite, we'll leave it alone. But if it sates the audience's appetite, it needs to come down. Does that make sense?

There are too many little things to nitpick there.

* Your AMV shows a significant portion of the show, or perhaps all the good bits. Basically, makes people think they've already seen the whole thing. This gets into the "AMV that's just the entire show aggregated" scenario, which is obviously wrong. (Well, I think it is.)
* Your AMV is a criticism of the show, and it is executed well-enough to get others to adopt your opinion of the show. On a large enough scale, this would affect how many people decide to buy copies of the show. Frankly, I think that would be a pretty awesome AMV; you don't come across too many AMVs that communicate an opinion, much less do it well. I don't think that's wrong to do at all.
* Your AMV is crap, and makes the show look like crap. I'm not sure where this stands on the right-vs-wrong spectrum.
