I'm working on a detailed Uru fan site (something along the lines of www.anarchyarcanum.com), (http://www.anarchyarcanum.com),) but I guess I probably need to get permission to use Uru graphics. From whom should I ask permission?

Depending on how many images you use, and if you are not making any money off the site, you shouldbe able to use them for free without permission, under the "Fair Use Doctrine".

If you are going to be using lots of images and stuff, then you'll probably need permission. There's a link to the legal "asset Request" form on Cyan's homepage.

Ok, thanks for the info. I didn't figure it would be a big deal, but I just wasn't sure of the legalities.

Actually all sites using any of the assets from a Cyan game need to send a legal request form through Cyan's website at http://www.cyanworlds.com to request permission. It's more of a formality than anything for most requests, but I try to encourage proper communication channels whenever possible http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
