Anyways, if you are into this sort of thing, I'd suggest checking out the site while it is still around.
While I'm all for hacking phones, I can understand HTCs actions regarding this. Posting this amount is probably a bit much. Here is the first part of the letter. Several other sites are discussing exactly what "art" is supposed to mean.

Subject: Cease and Desist Letter of HTC ROMs posted on your website
Dear Sir or Madam:
I write to you on behalf of HTC Corporation (“HTC”), a Taiwanese company with a global business, who is the owner of certain intellectual property (“HTC¡¦s Intellectual Property”). It is our understanding that you are responsible for the hosting of an internet webpage located at http://shipped-roms.com (the “Site¡¨). HTC has also recently learned that the Site contains software/ROM related to HTC¡¦s Intellectual Property which entails illegal copying of HTC¡¦s original art work.
