    Default The Sale Of GT Fan Art Is Illegal! (Outside game)

    If you create fan art for growtopia, you are USING Ubisoft sprites. Now if we take that buying wls with real money is illegal, then it is logical to think that buying fan art for world locks is illegal as well because you are buying an outside service for world locks. Now to selling fan art for real money.
    You cannot sell derivative artworks made of copyrighted characters, and the only exception is if you have written permission from the copyright holder. If you want to sell fan art for real money you must get written permission from Ubisoft. TL;DR it's illegal don't do it. (Unless a Ubi official allows you to)

    It is highly illogical to think that selling fan art containing UBISOFT sprites is allowed to be sold for real money. When you email support and ask for permission to use sprites for an app, they will tell you that you CANNOT monetize the app in any way, they will give you permission to use their sprites but NOT monetize them for YOUR OWN benefit. Now with that information I will let you rethink your life.

    Please refrain from causing drama and repeating posts.
    Being aggressive isn't going to help your case, either.
    This thread is pointless, and it only causes annoyance.

    One thread about the same topic is enough.

    What I see from that thread is an argument going nowhere, the facts in there are wrong and pointless. It's not called aggressive it's called having a brain.

    yes your reply to this thread has single handedly made me question my very own existence, you did not reference any copyright law to dispute my point, whatever you just said does not disprove my point, please never forget that Ubisoft is not above the law, you can monetize Growtopia and Ubisoft sprites if it is within fair use and within laws/fair use of your country's laws, if you dont get a cease and desist letter from Ubisoft then you're safe from any legal trouble, didnt get a cease and desist, keep on making art or maybe selling, if you get, stop.

    Unless you have permission from the company who owns the sprites it is 100% illegal to "resell" their sprites. Google it if you want " is it legal to sell fan art"

    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.

    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.
