I'm really excited someone tackled the Westeros map (though I wish it were a little bigger). I loved the one that was in V3. In regards to copyright, I'm guessing the image must have been made from scratch to get around legal issues. However, it appears that the nation icons are taken straight from the HBO series. Should that be a cause for concern?

Also, for clarifying purposes, what all is included in a copyright? Is it just the image file, or does it include character/place names?

I really don't think they would come after us for using fan-made materials based on a show/book/movie/etc. Unless they were making money on it, then possibly a problem. However, since the icons were in direct violation, we have had to pull the map down for now. Hopefully the creator (I think his name is solanski) can be contacted and we can get it fixed. If you happen to see him in game, please let him know to come here and discuss it!

Yes, I removed the map. It needs to have the nation (+ other?) images changed to not infringe on copyrights. Sorry for that.
