It would be super cool if Reed could swing a deal with Cafe Press or some such T-shirt company where images and prompts could be combined to create awesome T-shirts.
Hmm... that'd be cool, but I don't think any of the images are a high enough resolution to use for printing. :|
They are if you bunch together 30 odd of them.
Yeaaaah, I don't think I'd be down for that, haha.
I mean, LOOK at this: Stickpool's drawing and the prompt
that had me cracking up and I love it and would love to have them together on a t-shirt cause they make me laugh
YEah, alone pics would not have good enough resolution, BUT if you did an entire game displayed on a shirt that would work!
See... I can crack up and laugh but I don't think there's a single image/description combination that I'd want to put on a shirt. For me, Drawception is just too much of an inside joke, and I personally don't like making inside jokes public because they lose what makes them funny.
I recognize others don't feel the same, I'm just putting my two cents in. :p
And it just occurred to me.. Looked at the ToS. Really wish I looked at this before spending all this time on Drawception.
Section 2.2.1 is really god damned scary, and I think it's kinda not cool that you don't have to see the Terms of Service before being able to create an account.
You can have my scribblings, I accepted that I'd never own them from the start. What I have a problem with is:
You further acknowledge and agree that your name, likeness, and/or SN Website Profile may be associated your Drawings and you hereby grant Drawception a perpetual, royalty-free, non-exclusive, irrevocable, unrestricted, worldwide license to use your name, likeness, and/or SN Website Profile in association with your Drawings and/or Submitted Content.
That just means they can promote themselves using your profile/drawings without asking your permission.
That's the jist of it, but the wording allows for way more than just that.
The wording has to, to make sure that people can't sue them for the perfectly ordinary reasons it's there for.
If they actually tried to steal your username, for example, they'd fail miserably as the chances are Facebook already owns it...
Look it up, 9gag does the same, it's part of these kinds of websites. I really don't mind though, I only spend 10 minutes on each drawing. It's not gonna be worth anything.
I'm pretty sure there'd be a lot of legal red tape involved with this.
Not that I care and I could be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure all the content is copyright of the author/artist of each individual panel.
Think you'll find in most cases the copyright belongs to whoever drew the original picture Google found for us...
Pnkwag, the ToS I mentioned basically states that if Reed wants to sell products with our drawings on it, he is a-okay to do so without even having to give royalties or anything.
I'd say it's a waste of money, considering you could do it yourself for 5 dollars. Just save the image, print it on transfer paper and iron it onto a plain T-shirt of your choice.
Except by doing that, you potentially violate the ToS depending on how lawyers interpret it, and if it's someone else's image, you violate their own sort of creator rights on it too unless you specifically ask if it's okay.
I mean, there's nothing physically stopping you, and it's totally feasible to do it without ever encountering any legal issues. My point is that shit's a slippery slope, and one of my biggest peeves with the internet is how little credit people who make the stuff everyone enjoys is given.
The ToS have a remedy for anyone who isn't happy with them:
' IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT AND/OR THE PRIVACY NOTICE, YOU DO NOT HAVE DRAWCEPTIONâ€™S AUTHORIZATION TO USE ANY OF THE SERVICES AND YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE ANY PORTION OF THE WEBSITE. '
There's a reason I stopped drawing here. Trying to sort out feelings about it. :p
