Title: AIW's memes authorization
Post by: Pumpkin on September 16, 2016, 06:38:25 AM
Heya.

I'm currently making up some demotivational posters -lite for AI War, and before posting, I have some questions.

1) Am I allowed to use Arcen's pictures (units, background, etc) to create and "publish" (aka "just send on internet") them? As I add Arcen's and AI War's logos in them, I imply I don't pretend being the author of the used pictures. Is it enough?

2) Where to post? I guess I'll upload them on my site and do a little forum thread somewhere. (Which subforum?) As there is a social media "call for participation" (here (https://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,19145.msg0.html)), I first intended to gather and flesh out AIW's memes (here (http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/433823760614940832/7C83B07C9EFEBB4E65C7E159EE24165FA90D05DF/) and there (http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/427070261337918837/66C21552FEC06F770B49D458C4980FA102C1EB77/); I can imagine several in the vein of "brace yourself CPA is coming" and "one does not simply walk into Homeworld"). So is it okay to create some and tweat them or something?

3) Any "yes but..."? Legal mentions? Places not to post in? etc

Thanks in advance.

No restrictions whatsoever.  Meme away!

I don't even care if you use profanity, but please just don't post them on this forum if you do.  For instance, I love the Picard meme, but it wouldn't be appropriate here.

I'm pretty sure those inequalities are facing the wrong way.

(Small warning from experience: Demotivators should never go out on a company's own social media network or known partisans, it's always a bad look. Otherwise, fire away.)

Back to original content creation... Or isn't it original?

The CPA one made me chuckle.

If I had any artistic talent I would make a looping gif of a couple stardocks making nienzul as fast as possible (limited only in how fast the ship can leave the dock). The zerg rush works for humans too.

Love it all. :)

Noted on demotivational ones not going out on social media: I can see that being a really bad look.

Here is a general one that applies to all things, but it works so much for AI War.
