The downloader really is that simple as long as the addon is available via other means for free, including curse which has a free downloader. Who cares if I make a program that performs the same function as the curse agent and charge money for it? You're not getting an edge using that downloader over curse over manually getting files which are also available, so it's all good.The tourguide files are a little gray area to me because the addon is free and the file would then be open source, more or less, but if getting the file in the first place is behind a paywall, then I'm not so sure. What's amusing then would be to just share the file on your own site for free as it can't possibly be upheld in court in any manner I can see. Open source is open source.As for the pdf/html guides, I can't imagine how they can be legal since inevitably there has to be pictures, names, and other trademarked or copyrighted materials used in the book, likely without license, and for profit.
