    Yup, Illegal. CS:S doesn't use L4D content by default.

    as long as everyone playing your map has L4D it is legal. in other words, its not legal to publish it as people can dl it without having L4D
    Common sense is not so common

    Dr. Ice nailed it. one fairly common way to get around the issue is be to use external files instead of bringing the content into the css folder or packing it with/into the map. that way if the player has L4D installed they will hear the sound files, and if they dont the game wont be able to locate them and so it simply wont play them. ppl do this all the time with textures and models
