Check out the following post on Starbase UGC.

The questions were supplied by us the foundry authors to Cryptic and response is included. I would say any canonical Mirror universe ships are under the same banner as the Enterprise and Defiant.

It is the actor's likeness not the ships to my understanding.

About a year ago, Judge ruled that Electronic Arts does not have to pay ex-Rutgers quarterback Ryan Hart and others for using their images in its NCAA Football video game. The case is based on intellectual property rights for video game makers, which must pay to use elements of their games. In its line of NCAA Football games, for instance, EA must pay to include school names, team names, uniforms, logos, and stadium fight songs.

So if you place an image of Patrick Stewart into the Foundry and call him Picard. Cryptic ends up getting sued by Mr. Stewart's attorney. The same could be said if you place an image of Ryan Hart in the game and call him Ryan Hart.

Show me the money.

--edit-- More stupidity here.
