I've found a few open-source software projects and I'd like to run my own websites regarding them, but not claiming to own them; just make a place where information and such can be found. I believe I can do this and nobody can stop me for the following of reasons, among possibly others:
It's open-source, so I can host my own builds of software that I compiled myself.
The names of the projects are not registered, so I can use them at my own will and it's not illegal. Also, if the name is ambigious or vague, this just lends me even more leverage.
I do not claim to own them, but just simply want my own site about them (i.e., "fan site," or maybe what is possibly known as a "mirror site" that may host builds but is not the "official" site, etc.).
Not a penny is made off of any of the projects, so it's impossible for me to "steal money."
I just want a bigger community where I can feel I have power over the questions asked about the projects, but without me claiming to be/impersonate any normal developers; hence, I am correct.
However, I plan to host builds, re-use their designs (which are not trademarked or registered copyrights) and provide my own information and testing, environment, etc., about them.
Basically, it's a way of deluding myself into thinking I have power, but not claiming I own them.
For example, I get traffic to my sites about projects of others, and I can point them to download links to builds on the "official" site but let the visitors have a pretty, fancy UI and stuff that the main doesn't.
I also do not wish to ask the project maintainers if they'd be okay because then I'd feel powerless.
