Because posting material already existant about a show is one
thing (and WB requires that the proper copyright be appended to all
such web sites in any event). A different situation is a sim, which
*uses* copyrighted characters and situations, creating a *game* which
is not licensed, which also results in *story material* that also
infringes on the copyright and could create further complications.
