Stumbled over this posting:URL-REMOVED. I believe this violates HiG's rules (same for the sale of another, accessible from the same location)

Yes, I believe it does, and you should send an email to HiG or Cundco, to report it.

I've removed the link from here, they don't need any more SEO, or help selling their unlicensed products.

What were they selling out of curiosity?

Probably a printable fan-made "expansion" that uses the game's official artwork.

Correct, and I'd prefer not to mention the specifics!

That's fine. And thank you. Just made me curious whether it was custom meeple, fan expansion, complete bootlegs or what? Lol. So you answered my question. :-) Just wasn't sure what would be considered violating the rules. :-D

It was an expansion... not a fan-expansion though.. No 'fan' of the game would look to directly profit by making use of HiG's assets without their direct permission.

Done :)

Also, I like the distinction between "expansion" and "fan expansion". HiG has a super open licence, allowing forums like this and its sisters to exist and thrive. Other authors are not so generous (and it is not necessarily that they're "bad"; each author is free to decide how to disseminate their own creative work).

+1 from me SxN, I'm sure HiG like to hear that their fans are watching out for them; and it's good it doesn't simply come from the same individuals every time.  We're very lucky to have the agreement with HiG to use their assets freely so long as their rights and requests are observed.

@Decar  Just out of curiosity what exactly are the contents of this agreement? And is it agreement between HiG and Carc Central, or multiple Carcassonne forums?
I don't really deal with fan expansions, so I never looked into this.
