    I was just noticing at the bottom of the screen here on the internet site theres a message that says:
    " Nature's Call: The Spider Queen, Nature's Call 2: Return of the Dragons, by Darky27, are Copyrighted © 2002-2003
    Kickass blp converter app and MPQ framework Copyright © by BahamutZERO, bahamut@macstorm.org. Visit his website at www.macstorm.org "

    but you cant copyright those maps man! the Blizzard Terms and Use statement clearly states that because they were made for Wacraft III using Warcraft III World Editor they are as such property of Blizzard Entertainment. I do beleive then that your saying that you have the copyrights to the map is copyright infringment (but no i do not know the legal term) which is illegal and can get u fined, maybe even jailed if it was a big enough fraud. I just wanted to point that out but i didnt mean any offense by it man.

    You can't use a license at all to copyright any maps. The only way you could ever copyright this if you bought rights from Blizzard on its game engine and the WE. I mean you can say its copyrighted just to scare of people that wan't to steal the map for there own but in the end in leagal terms it dosen't mean anything.

    Note how he doesn't claim the maps to be © him. He only claims the copyright for the concepts.

    And you can get fined or jailed for claiming copyrights to a map? :eekani:

    yea but ill tell you now this is a really old forum. but since its the only one that had the latest response then ill go ahead and talk. People don't understand the concept of the copyright laws. The only thing copyright covers is the use of your stuff in commercial uses unless stated otherwise. but if you use the WE then its all blizzards even if you put your own work in it but becuase you do got some your own work blizzard coulden't deal with that but they could easily take your work and you coulden't do crap about it. Its similar to modeling even. all of it is still copyrighted to the company that made modeling the only way you can leagly copyright it is if you buy a commercail license.
