well, i have a question of which i know what the answer will be most likely.

i'm missing pro-q3tourney4 and some other IDmaps really hard in openarena. so, if i extract the mapdata from the quake3's pak0.pk3 and decompile it by using gtkradiant's bspc with

Code::
"<path to GTKRadiant folder>\bspc.exe" -bsp2map "<path to map>" -output "<outputdir>"

and replace every single texture in the map by my own custom textures, would this still violate copyright-protection? or in other words: are only the textures copyrighted or the whole map?

That would probably not be legal.

If the pro* maps are in pak6.pk3 you would only need that and textures, but distributing it would probably not be legal anyway... It might be legal if ID permits spreading and using the patches with whatever you want.

I'm not a copyright expert though. :P

Edit: pak6.po3 also contains VMs and other stuff so you'd need to modify and redistribute that which probably isn't legal.
