Then how does Square Enix have the power to shutdown fan projects like Chrono Resurrection? IIRC, it was fan made, non-profit, and didn't use any art assets from the original game, just likeness (like a story about Varian would use his name and history).

Doh, above was supposed to be in response to Idran.

If I remember right, they didn't actually do anything to shut them down. They sent the fangroup a C&D notice, and then the fangroup took it down both to avoid the legal battle and out of respect for Square-Enix. C&Ds don't have any actual legal power, they're basically a warning saying "if you don't stop then we'll come after you with our lawyers". So it never went to trial, and if it had then the ruling likely would have ended up in their favor based on past precedent.
