technicaly spokent hey are legal as long as you dont use the same names as euromir (for anything), dont use the same quests, dont use the same images (aka you'd have to completely redraw every single wil file yourself without using any of the images from the original client

basicaly the main thing is you cant spread any image from the official client and your players cant use them
if they do they are breaking the law + you're breaking the law for spreading them
and you're also breaking the law if you use the same 'ideas' as the official server (aka item, mob names, quests, ...)

With so many p servr kicking around, i really wouldn't worry to much about it. Look at rade zone, the longest runing p servers, never been closed down, and all the item on rage zone are the same as euro mir.

At the end of the day, ruuning a server is illegal as your using copy righted software.

It's like chaging the name of norton to some thing else, then selling it.

The programing is still the same.

But at the end of the day, mir 2 is a very small thing to the wemade now, and i don't think there are going to start sueing people over runnin p servers.

that's not quite true in this cause since the current files are not entirely wemades
most of it is actionly a recreation and not the actual stuff (basicaly making your own version of norton rather then just changing the name)
