Does this mean we cannot use Bricklink data for the parts reviewing process anymore? Their legal wording clearly implies that.
If we do so, I think there must be a way to suppress the use of LDraw-Content (Part-Pictures) on Bricklink. Isn't it?
Btw: I don't know when I used the Bricklink-Database for a review process for the last time. Normally I check the part on Brickset, in my own collection or ask friends.

As long as they are attributing LDraw, our licencing allows them to use our data.
