    Now if that isn't saying that it's legal then I don't know what is.

    I think as long as the art seller is not a scammer, that's fine

    Stop calling people names.
    You are certainly showing no respect for the community, deeming you unsuitable to be dictating.

    Tell me how "fan art" equates to "using sprites"?

    Are you sure you know what the definition of fan art is?

    1. Growtopia characters aren't copyrighted.
    2. You can't copyright clothes. If I drew a person with a wolf mask and a fedora (both of which are in-game items) that vaguely resembled a Growtopia character, would that be infringing on the copyright?

    I think the argument here is selling fan art for world locks and not selling fan art for money

    Precisely.

    It's still legal unless it uses Ubisoft sprites. If it was fully hand-drawn or painted, it's legal. It was only taken inspiration from actual Growtopia sprites and did not use any actual Growtopia sprites.

    Example: So if I drew a blue saber which is originally from Star Wars but also an item in Growtopia, and I sell that art for money.. is it illegal?

    Nope, he's saying selling Growtopia fan art for money is illegal. To be fair, it's correct in most cases, just not this one.

    It’s undeniable that selling user-created arts for Growtopia currency/items is illegal. However if it’s ILLEGAL to sell art for any form of currency OUTSIDE of Growtopia, a lot of our artists wouldn’t be around today - and they have been around for years, if it’s not allowed, actions would’ve been taken earlier. Do you also happen to think that all Growtopia youtubers should be sued by Ubisoft since they’re using Growtopia to earn revenue? Also no need for 2 posts mate, ignore the arguments and look for the replies that are related to the topic
    Don’t wait for opportunity. Create it.

    Taken directly from the Growtopian Code:
    Art Works:

    You will credit Growtopia and Ubisoft for the assets used;

    The art will not be put up for sale.
