Check the LEC site, prolly under legal stuff or the FAQ. Im sure it would be illegal though.

Yeah, LEC has a lot of legal issues. They recently threatened to sue a kid that made a deathstar level for UT.

Makes you wonder when it gets taken that far, I mean it's just fun and games. I can understand where they're coming from, but is it really necessary? :(

I will have to look more into it, as I know that fan-sites, private sites, and even clan sites have screen shots and images from JK, but I guess that has to do with the fact that the own the game. I just see alot of sites that are not LEC affliated or authorized, and they all have pictures of movie images, characters, etc.....so who knows, but im sure LEC knows..... :D

I dont understand why these companies need to be sooooo fussy. I think they should be more concerned with their games being copied etc..

Why do you worry about that?
Im 99% sure that Its illegal, but cmon!
They wont sue you because you use a screnshot of the game! Its even promotion for them
Of course if you do something reasonable
I remember there were some problems with a DF level because the objective was stealing some porn photos of princess Leia, but if you dont make anything like that, you wont have any problem

Well, If you don't advertise that is the objective (Go steal some personel files!), then they may never know!

BTW, that level still around? :p :p :D :p :p

Lose the sig madposter, You're being disrespectful now, enough people have commented on it, so for the last time of asking could you PLEASE remove the sig?
