No offense but you are quite clearly not a specialist! A lot of mods, which use **officially** released SDKs, get shutdown (with Cease & Decist orders) due to simply infringing IP.

Wine can be used by developers to port an application (to Linux/Mac-OS/FreeBSD) by recompiling it against the Wine libraries. But you are not a Dungeon Keeper 2 dev right?

So I also don't really see the relevance of this topic to the Wine project.
