Default Is it possible for others to sell original GURPS adventures? What are the rules?

Is it possible for companies or individuals other than SJG itself to sell GURPS materials (for example: adventures, NPC collections, new settings, etc? I was able to find rules for posting GURPS materials on the web:
http://www.sjgames.com/general/online_policy.html
but it explicitly excludes selling GURPS adventures.

If it is possible, are the rules similar to the online policy page? (No use of copyrighted materials, no trade dress, limited use of images, etc?)

Outside designers must obtain a license from SJ Games if they want to sell materials based on our games. If you want to explore this option, email licensing@sjgames.com with your business plan and proposed releases.

Gaming Ballistic LLC is a licensee for GURPS and The Fantasy Trip. Their store demonstrates works that have got approval from SJG.

I have no connection with them, other than being a customer.

Andrew, thanks for the quick response. I'll send the info to licensing, and see what happens. It's too bad there are no general rules so you can just follow the rules and publish GURPS materials. It would make it a lot easier to create/distribute GURPS adventures, settings, etc.
