Just as a rule of thumb so we don't get in trouble
I agree. If anyone knows specifically of any devs/roms that I have listed that have been sent a Cease and Desist order, I will take them down (or other mods can do so at their discretion, but please let me know that this is the reason).

Thus far, ONLY HTC has sent C&D orders, but not to the 2 devs that I have listed. If anyone hears otherwise, please let us know and we will remove.

Other manufacturers have not stepped into this game, so for now it's just HTC. In theory, any device that has Moto Blur or HTC Sense could receive a C&D, since the layer they put on top of Android is copyrighted.

That said, open source devices such as the Motorola Droid and HTC Nexus One can not be ordered a C&D, since they are running stock Android, which is open source...

Just thought I would clear that up a bit...
