You realize of course that sucking resources from any application
that isn't yours, and for which you do not have permission to take
such resources to claim for your own, is a violation of copyright law,
and usually is also a violation of the software license agreement for
It is always best, and safest to create your own content. Then one
is never at risk for any lawsuits whatsoever. Or, get permission
in writing from the owners of the software to use those resources.
If someone were sucking resources from your software application
which you worked very hard on for many weeks to enrich themselves
at your expense, I think you would not be a happy programmer.
This is just a cautionary reminder for everyone.
