I'm pretty sure that is what led to the removal. Hexwar in particular is
distributing the old SPI games online through their game interface and sees
vassal as direct competition.

Decision games has been more lenient towards modules, I know some recent
games (not SPI titles though, that may be why) that have modules haven't
been complained about at least not publicly. If you ask their permission for
a module they'll probably grant it.

It was my understanding that it was Hexwars / Decision Games which now have
the copyrights and asked for their removal. I think the email Rodney sent
out to the Yahoo group explaining about it should still be there in the
archive. I'll dig it out tonight if you can't find it

In this case, somebody purportedly owns the rights to some SPI games (one?
all?), and once asked Rodney to remove them. I don't know the exact details.
I wish I did.
