Subject: Sims Fan Sites
Dear Ms. Collins,
I apologize for the delay in responding to your
emails regarding The Sims Fan Sites. As you
know, Fan Sites are an important and valuable
component to The Sims and The Sims
community. They greatly enrich people's
enjoyment of the product. In response to
your inquiries, we intent to revise
the Fan Site User License Agreement to state that
the agreement shall not prohibit a Fan Site from
charging users a modest access fee.
I hope this responds to your concerns.
