Topic: Collaborations / Looking for Graphic Artists or Programmers To Help With Pokemon Game Development. (Need 1 of each)

Many people seem to believe that as long as you don’t make money off of a project that uses materials under copyright, you are not breaking the law

People can use Your work as part of their (i.e. wallpapers, non profit games etc) as long as copyrighted item is only part of their project (ofc Your permision will be advisable) BUT righteufull owner can shut a project, wallpaper or w/e he wants (if it uses copyrighted item ) to as its his right.

Some examples of what i’m talkin about:

You make a home video when Your kids play around, theres a radio on and some song is audible. Then You share this movie with Your friends or family and voila You break the law – You illegally distributed song (or part of it).

2 example:
You making the webpage and create banner using Your favorite game character covered by Your own logo. (webpage is about same game that character on banner is from) You have used copyrights protected item – You break the law

You are a little too entusiastic about this project, calm down and cold calculate everything ;)

We will give items/pokemon to gamers for donations and that money will only be used for development costs.

By doing this You will break the copyright law, such game can’t generate any income itself (this including item shops, memberships, payd content etc.), only advertisements are allowed (as long as they wont appear in game) and other methods that dont involve copyrighted item itself. No matter if cash earned this way will cover developement costs or they will be used to buy some plasma TV ;) Income is an income no matter how You ll spend it.

Have You sent e-mail to nintendo ?

Only way You can create this game and dont make it banned at the release is to make it Fan’s game, which means = no incomes not including external ads, as they are not directly related to the copyright protected item BUT they will be too small after all to cover server costs, no sponosor, server costs, Rightfull owner can shut down Your game at any time whenever he will want to (even if its fan app only – its his right).

Anyway if You simply want to create this game just to show the world that You (or Yours group) can do it – it’s ok, other thing is if it have a sense, but I wont judge. In second if You want to get any money from this – its not going to happen and proably You will have probs with nintendo, and debts for servers.

Imo much better way is to contact nintendo, what they will let You to do or what they dont want to even hear about. For sure they will let You to create fan’s game and prohibite commercial game based on pokemon world ;)
