Nah, it's very clear.
It's easy to make something simple sound complicated tho. The answers are clear and straightforward. Common sense also plays here. Michael Dorn's face belongs to Michael Dorn. Worf's image belongs to CBS. If anyone has doubts about some content, simply ask first, or don't use it. But it seems pretty straightforward to me. Common sense should guide folks through any remaining grey areas. Of course there will always be those who are looking for a loophole or exploit, or who are waiting for someone to use a loophole or exploit on them. That can't be helped.
Somebody might correct me if I am wrong, but I don't believe that Cryptic or CBS has ever sued any of it's players for copyright infringement, or even (again correct me if I am wrong) pulled a Foundry mission? That's probably because the authors have tended to behave and not push limits, while Cryptic and CBS have been very easy going about it, and why not?
They own the foundry content anyway. Who would they sue? Themselves?
