Guys, The context of usage also plays its role.
One can do and use whatever they want for personal use. It gets problematic when you start distributing or passing stuff on and what you pass that stuff as.
A forum post discussing stuff and using this stuff can be taken very lightly however another forum post passing things to others as somethings they ain't are in true sense can be taken very seriously (irrespective of how noble the intentions be behind that).
In This Case,as said time and again, to serve and survive this forum like any other needs money and with for that they have agreed to certain terms and conditions laid down by their revenue providers, so irrespective of even what their personal beliefs be about this whole thing, they still have to abide by what's laid down, and in sense for greater Good.
The forum moderators have to, as well as are trying to avoid (to their best abilities) some serious problems that might arise beyond their manageable means and which is understandable.
On a personal note, why jump on someone else's bandwagon when you can be your Brand/Product.
and if anything is to be learnt from history, Jim Marshall did't make and distribute his so based on bassman clone as a fender bassman did he ??
I am sure neither GuitarAmpModeling nor any other developer here would like to be part of all this . So as users who love these guys and use their products/servies,perhaps we could show a little respect and restraint on ourselves to keep these out of any trouble due to what we may feel as appropriate.
however having said that,
In the past there have been few notings/postings on these forums that won't come out to be Third Party Trademarks friendly in either sense, so it is expected that such future postings/content would also be in consideration as violation and dealt with accordingly.
