Simple question, and I should know better.

If a customer uses Salesforce and installs a managed package, custom objects are installed and data gets created.

Now, suppose I want to expose some of that data to a customer within a community.

Does the vendor of the managed package have any say in whether I can do this? Where does their say in how we use data stored on their objects end?

You can definitely expose the objects in a package to external (community) users. You just need to ensure that the org-wide defaults, CRUD permissions, etc are set to the appropriate levels so the community users can view/modify them.
