Why else have the license if you don't utilize the content.
I would imagine that it's one thing to license a character, but quite another to license the likeness of a specific actor who portrayed that character. Superman has been played by enough people, and existed on his own, for them to be able to make a generic character that people will recognise as Superman. Jean Luc Picard has to look like Patrick Stewart, and then you're into a whole other ball game of licenses and fees. It's one of the reasons why you're not allowed to depict characters from the shows and movies in Foundry missions.

This character is why I don't play my Romulan any more. Tovan Khev is NOT my BFF! Get him off my bridge!
