Can I reuse the names of monsters from works published under the Open Gaming license, specifically monsters found in the Pathfinder Bestiary, the Open Pathfinder SRD web site or books published under the OGL that created new content for Pathfinder, or are they Product Identity or otherwise protected by copyright?
I intend to convert monsters to a new non D20 system.
For example I would post online the stats for monsters such as the Aboleth:
... plus other similar stats.
Basically the only piece left of the original would be the name but I don't want to step on copyrights, trademarks and licenses.
Also what about if the monster is a "Big Meany" from "Fictitious Press", can I convert it and reuse the name since it's been published in a book creating additional monsters for an Open Licensed Game (Pathfinder) or is "Big Meany" protected as Identity under the license?
