Fan Art: The Biggest Question in Night in the Woods

From Rad again! This one’s based off a funny moment from my Night in the Woods Let’s Play, where I have a brief existential crisis every time a Person Cat and a Cat Cat are on screen at the same time.

I love the visual of Mae carrying me around as I make all my stupid comments and generally interrupt her life.

Fan Games Are No Less Protected Than Fan Art By IP Laws

Or: It’s Time To Stop Defending Nintendo Unless You Hate Fan Art Too.

(This article is available in an expanded, podcast-style form as well, on YouTube.)

A common refrain when a fan game is taken down is that it’s within Nintendo’s rights. Do you know what else is within Nintendo’s rights? Sending DMCA takedowns to every single OC Remix track based directly on Nintendo’s music. What else is within Nintendo’s Legal Rights That Are Totally Always Okay To Enforce?

Say Nintendo read every article about Cosplay and sent a DMCA notice to have the pictures taken down and demanded that the cosplayer never again display or create a costume based on a Nintendo character. Is that cool with you? Because it’s not actually any different than fan games, legally speaking.

How about Nintendo sends DMCAs to the millions of pieces of Nintendo character fan art spread across Deviant Art, Pixiv, Twitter, Tumblr, everywhere? Because they could do that. Legally.

Remixes, fan art and yes, even cosplay are derivative works. The only legal difference between them and fan games is that corporations don’t go after them.

Fan Art: Sir TapTap in Terraria by Bamseper

This is an oldie but still a goodie, an artwork by Bamseper. This is from wayyyyyy back from Terraria’s 1.0 days or so. Bamseper’s been a fan for years and a pretty chatty one. It may not be new to me, but I’d like to share all the fan art I get and this one still warms my heart to this day.
