Agreed.. What about the textures and maps that come with the programs as well. They use them, and no company is suing them for using them. If they have created them from scratch then I can see their point not wanting anyone to use them, but they either grab a texture or multiple textures that someone else owns and create their own from that. Technically it is not theirs to claim royalties. If they use a camera and create an image and use no other images than the ones they have created in their entirety, then so be it and they have every right to claim royalties. I would not worry about it myself, and how are you going to copyright it anyway?.. Just my 2 cents..
I am with you on this one.... BOLLOCKS, they should get a life..
