Question Map copyrights/sales question

Apparently ffa_wov has copyrights and was made by Shroomduck and SOLD to wov...

Is this possible? I edited the map for personal use, the edited map hasn't and never will be public, and they are threatening a law suit.

if lucasarts and raven and all those people have the same policies as blizzard with wc3 and most other compainies to than you can't make maps for commercial use and you would probably would be ok if you made it for personal non-commercial use...actually they'd be the ones in trouble if the copyright info on jk2 is like wc3

I'm not sure I understand exactly what went on, I thought Shroomduck made the map for the clan, are you saying they paid him money to make this map for them? An exchange of money may have legal reprecussions.

As for your editing the map for your personal use, as long as you don't distribute it to anybody it shouldnt matter, but if you use it as a base for your own map and release it without the premission of the origional authors would be unethical, and they can get it taken off any websites that host it
