    Hi, i wanted to ask you is it legal to use ripped multimedia files from other applications?

    Say i would rip some bitmap toolbars/icons using MultiExtractor (multi format file ripper), can i use it in my C++ application?

    Unless the material is in the public domain (unlikely), it would be illegal to use it in a commercial way. Bear in mind that I am not an attorney. It is naive to look to a technical forum, rather than an attorney, for meaningful legal advice.
