I'm sure I read somewhere that technically, fan works are a copyright infringment but that companies don't mind as long as people aren't making money out of it, as they feel it helps promotion and what is a game without fans? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif Don't know this for sure though...just something I heard.

Oh yes and a famous court battle saw the owner of infamous site "Nude Raider" sued a milllion dollars. If the owners of LAra get wind of nude pics, they'll ask the site to remove 'em, as they don't want Lara's image as a porn star.
