Klei's stance on copyrighted characters?

Recommended Posts

I've noticed a few in workshop, but I'm wondering how lenient Klei is and if I can get away with integrating Lewis from Ghost Skull music video.

Considering these are just fanmade character mods, there wouldn't really be any damage done unless you tried to claim the character as your own. I don't really think Klei minds.

 

And if they do mind, I guess I'm in trouble.

As long as you don't make money out of it, nobody really cares.

 

Unless you are dealing with a 14 year old OC donut steel sonic ripoff deviantart guy. :glee:

I guess it's like anything you make in the likeness of someone else's IP: if they complain, you can't let it stay. It's polite to ask their permission, but some people are still just cool or even pleased when they find out about such things. Klei doesn't really have anything to do with user created content I don't think, so their position would likely be as above I imagine.
