Hello all,
yesterday I decided I'd upload an avatar for my char. I was in fact going to use a part of the fabulous Paranoia RPG cover, so I hit the copyright conundrum when I tried to upload it.

This is completely fine, and I understand that copyright is an important topic. But then my question is, why is my char wearing Hello K. cotton mittens (apart from the fact that he bought them)? Shouldn't this be renamed too?

That's your gloves. They, boots and helms don't show up on physical descriptions.


For rent: one skull, in serious need of dusting.

In United States copyright law, fair use is a doctrine that permits limited use of copyrighted material without acquiring permission from the rights holders. Examples of fair use include commentary, search engines, criticism, parody, news reporting, research, teaching, library archiving and scholarship. It provides for the legal, unlicensed citation or incorporation of copyrighted material in another author's work under a four-factor balancing test.


1. It may not actually be fair use (it's kind of a parody? I guess?)

2. Island is under UK law anyway (I think?) so heeeeeeeeeey

Edit: Apparently the UK has fair use laws too. The more you know

Mind, I'm not complaining at all - actually this game is one of the best I've come across in some time, so I'm cheering for it to keep prospering (also I've donated a few bucks on it, so double that cheer). I'm happy to know that it's all fine and dandy. Smile
