Just want to make sure of the rules before I go and do it.. and that I am safe to assume it's ok as I have seen UI's that use stuff from screenshots in other games for WoW UI's

Any help is welcome .

The majority of my clients are digital artists, and the business I run requires that I know a bit more than the average joe about copyrights. Having said that, if there is no public permission given on the original artists web site and there is no way to contact them, then don't use it. Otherwise, always always always ask. Never assume that you have permission simply because there is no permission given on their site.

Edit: If you are unsure, check out R.I.G.H.T.S. (redistribution in graphics has to stop) For Artists.
