I'm thinking about setting up a membership based site where I design game website templates and allow the members free access to the templates as a paid member.
I see websites selling actual gaming website templates using the game's artwork and was wondering if this is even legal?
What got me wondering about if this is legal or not I downloaded a fansite kit, however in the fansite kit was a pdf file that say's this:
All materials contained in this “Fansite Kit,” including, but not limited to, any electronic files, code, audio or images (“Fansite Materials”), are the copyrighted property of Funcom GmBH, who grants you a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-assignable, royalty-free license to display the Fansite Materials for your personal, non-commercial use, provided, however, that you must include or maintain all copyright, trademark and other notices contained in, or associated with, the Fansite Materials.

You also agree that you will not alter, disassemble, decompile, reverse-engineer or otherwise modify the Fansite Materials, except as needed to create a "fansite" based upon The Secret World.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
