Catherine on Simply Sims asked Electronic Arts:

"As an object creator I want to know are all object creators allowed to sell their objects or "access" to their objects or just a handful of now pay Sims sites?"

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.
