If someone were to post for example an SSD of a converted FASA ship like the Loknar on his forums, he'd have no choice but to remove it or he could end up being sued for breaking copyright laws.
And he emphasized he had to pay lawyers to tell him that.
So while it's okay to do a conversion and post it up on your own site, it's not cool to do so on "his" forums since it's a commercial one.
