          If it is legal, I am going to use that theme and wBB 1.2, if it isnt I may buy vB :P

          I am thinking that it is illegal because they are redistributing your images, but just the temlates I think is ok :P

            Templates are ok, but they are not allowed to use our copyrighted images.

                If they are just slightly modifed (i.e., change in color, etc.) then no - this is not ok. This would still be a copyright infringement.
