All the monsters?  Not that I can see. Oh sure, he has the Dread Gazebo but I can't find rot grubs anywhere.

They've been fairly good at leaving their stuff open source for people to use. That's why Pathfinder was able to convert 3.5 without issues. As long as he wasn't directly copying the images from the Monster Manual, they don't care.

They seem to be one of the very few companies that understand that user created content helps increase the popularity of their products.

Besides, it's not like they can claim copyright over mythical creatures like cockatrices.

If they were Games Workshop, they'd change the name of every monster just so they could claim copyright.

They already kinda do, for some. The more fun CR 10+ monster, that have fun abilities and cool stuff. They have at least 3 types of beholders under their IP, and any named characters used as vlassic villians, and some gods.

Hasbro has played relativly nice with inhereting a legacy product like D&D.

yes and no.

They're fairly decent about created content. But let's not forget that the whole reason for 4e was because the OGL of 3.X sort of blew up in their face, with everyone and their brother desktop publishing thousands of shiatty, untested 3e material. 5e licensing Is a suitable compromise, IMO

Also, with the Spelljammer and Dragonlance announcements, Jeff Grubb, Tracy Hickman, and Margarat Weiss all said nobody contacted them about this and the announcement came as a complete surprise to all of them. Now, WoTC/Hasbro doesn't have *legal* obligations to keep the creators in the loop, but they're missing out on a lot of 'easy layup' PR points with the fanbase by *not* keeping the creators in the loop, as well.

Well that and he's literally doing 3D modelling work of all their monsters for free that they can use for official licensed products in the future.

Downloading dragons is the premise of a video game I'm playing now.
