I expect that no one on this list can answer it as it requires a
lawyer who can give you an opinion on the legality for who you are,
where you are and what exactly you can do. You aren't going to find
any opinion on the internet which is 'valid' because there are many
factors which can't be answered without knowing that information and
being a lawyer who is skilled in the various contract, commercial and
similar laws.
