S.T.A.L.K.E.R. not stealing content from other games

One of the more interesting news posts from last week is the rumour that the developers from S.TA.L.K.E.R. may have stolen content from other games like Doom 3 and Half-Life 2.

According to The Inq this news can now be buried.

It appears that these textures that were mistaken as stolen content actually come from a texture pack sold by Marlin Studios.
Valve has confirmed that it picked up some textures from Marlin for HL2, and separate sources have discovered that the IMP_Light texture that it was thought could have been pilfered from Doom 3 was, in fact, just a standard Impact Light texture, rather than referring to the Doom 3 monster.
