Server Based off Franchises

So technically you can play Graal for free, and server developers don't make a profit. So why would making a server based off of a movie series such as Star Wars, Pokemon, Dragon Ball Z, etc. not be acceptable when there is no profit being made by the maker?

If the copyright holders have an issue with the project they will send them a C&D, it doesn't matter if you're making a profit or not. I.e. When they shutdown the Chrono Trigger 3D Remake

Bomber games was also send a C&D for remaking Streets of Rage, and had to shut down.

Also, are you actually serious because it's hard to tell.
All content you submit (allegedly) becomes property of graalonline. Additionally, since graalonline would be hosting your server and using it to turn a profit, franchises..no

Then again, quite a few servers blatantly advertise and use copyrighted content, so..do whatchaa wanna?

What Scoper said, but to put it even more simply:

As the developer of the server, you don't make profit. True enough. But you have paid a registered company to rent said server, therefore you are responsible for keeping the content you make on the server you're renting through the registered businesses services within copyright.

Now this is what I don't understand.

Yes, they own the server itself you rent for, but why is it that there's so many of these servers? We could truthfully have a better standard of quality if we designed servers as a unified group and not a bunch of miniature groups. We ***** and whine over a lack of content to play and yet we'll see a small group suddenly create something spectacular and then disappear, when we know that if we had more people in a project like that, it would've been up and running. (If it's not obvious, I'm referring to Atlantis in this case)

It makes absolutely no sense to me for business.

There is no logic in Graal's model, which is why it was dying. All it took was a little common sense in the iMarket (F2P w/ cash cosmetics) and now it's more popular than it's ever been before.

Just make it based on Zelda... ?
Crap on a stick, we've been using stolen images since 1999.
My whole life as a level designer was a sham. None of us on Graal would have even made the cut as a level designer to use these tiles for Nintendo anyhow. Their very first original attempts at using these tiles make all subsequent attempts (on Graal) look pretty bad.
