    Re: The laws of copyrighting.

    Look at it this way, you are not making any profit at all, you are doing this for the fans; since it is like that, think about this, how many people are just like you, wanting to do a fan-fiction and maybe draw it out, how many artists and fan fiction writers are out in the world, think about that and that is your answer. The company won't do anything as long as you do use thier EXACT character drawings in others you copy the character designs EXACTLY and you do not make a profit off of what you do.

    i just want to say that one fine example is the super robot wars(the game).
    banpresto(who made the game series) did really practice the laws of copyright carefully and correctly which gave me a respect for banpresto. after all, the game contains all anime mecha(gundams, macross, eva, etc.) in which they do cost a lot from the very likeness of the mechas, characters, and even the voices of the japanese actors. and what makes more impressed, that bandai will continue making the game in all types of game consoles(except for x-box, because the game is purely made only in japan).
    YYYEEEEAAAAAAHHHHH!!!

    to be totally honest, the only time you'll have to worry about copyright infringement is if you're making some serious money off of it...like several thousand dollars or more...

    Look...Ive done stuff like that too...
    It is illegal and the characters are copyrighted...
    But...The work we do isnt even a itch for the authors...they gain nothing with sewing us..They dont care...the characters are theirs anyways.

    its called doujinshi, alot of people make them.
    An if your not selling it.. then i dont see how your taking any profit away from the creators... i dont think they could sue you.
