If we build it, can you still use it?

This occurred to me in the thread I started on units only minimally mentioned in the fluff and/or having no current TW and up stats.

Some of these are pretty bog standard and there might not be all that many ways to re-create them. For instance; I have seen some really great takes on the MW1E Vehicles using ATOW and SupVee rules. Would that preclude TPTB ever doing similar, canonical work later on?

In short; if the fans create something and post it on the forums, does that mean TPTB can't use it or something very similar, themselves?

I'm not asking for credit for myself or anyone else, i'm just curious how this works.
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.
