Be advised that your simm is, insofar as I know, unlicensed and
unauthorized, and be further advised that WB has shut down other such
unlicensed and unapproved simms.

The use of the Chameleon game is fully covered by their
license. If one is having online games using that, for which users are
paying access time, that's something I don't know. I'll have to find
out.

"What can they do, sue me?"

Yup. They've shut down several others doing this that way.

"C'mon, like they're gonna sue a 17 year old."

Nope, they'll just sue your parents.

And bear in mind, you don't have to sue someone to get a
restraining order against them...which is what WB did to a couple of
other unlicensed SIMMS. You (or your parents) just end up spending a
lot of time in court.

Don't mess with the Shield. Trust me on this.

Best to drop a note to ken_parks@warnerbros.com and ask
directly of the source at WB legal. That way you'll be copacetic from
the start.
