Question about free art

villewantedvillewanted Posts: 66Member, PRO
I want to use tshirtbooth's free art (in the bucket template) but I habe discovered that there is another game in the app store using that art, May I have legal problems if I use the art on my game?

    Nope, your free to use it as long as Tshirt said you could.

    I don't know of the template you are speaking of, but I don't recall tshirtbooth saying any of his art is free to use, but for the sake of argument, lets say it is.

    Another app has the art on the app store, and possibly even more have it since it's free. Probably a lot more. There are a lot of vulturistic opportunists on the app store that will just publish a template as is, and if that template is free to use the art, I would totally expect several apps with that art, or pieces of it at least in them.

    You have to decide if you want to add to the mix, which would be okay if your game takes on a different aspect that all those other games dont, and is in a different category. If you are just expanding on what the template does, then you will be one of many apps with that same art, and gameplay.

    I have no friends. I'm a loser that makes video games all day. Will you be my friend?
