Castle Crashers Poster? 2009-01-30 03:56:17


Is this blatant infringment, or just a friendly nod to the series?

If Tom and Behemoth didn't get wind of it, and nod off to it going ahead, or a cut of the money, I'd be a little steamed.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, which means intellectual property theft is akin to a marriage proposal. But then again if that was the case, I suppose Pico and Lord Bling would have been making yaoi all the time.

Nice art though. I guess.

Looks like blatant plagiarism to me, but probably best to PM Tom about this?

Well, if they're not getting money from it and don't know about it... It's probably plagiarism. I've seen a lot of Newgrounds copyright infringement threads lately. Is it the latest trend?

Its like the guy selling 100s of home-made Castle Crashers shirts on ebay.

It doesn't seem like Tom is hurting for money - but still, he certainly has the grounds to claim infringement if he feels like it.

I doubt that a website that professional would blatantly copy CC and use it for a shirt. Maybe Tom is involved in this.

I agree great art work but if he is intitled to some money he should take it.

Even if Tom didn't give them permission to use the Castle Crashers name for their poster, it is still good publicity for the game and for Newgrounds. However, if they don't have permission Tom needs to know about it and ask it to either be removed or ask for some revenue from the sales unless they want to be sued.

It says "Castle Crashers" in the bottom corner. I fail to see what the problem is?

While I'm not giving out blanket permission for people to make and sell Castle Crashers merch, stuff like this hasn't bothered me at all... It helps spread the word and it's not done on a very large scale. I actually have that CC poster - the guy was selling them at a convention in NYC and Mike's girlfriend picked it up for us. :)

Seems like blatant plagiarism, and thei're using it as a source of money. I don't know if Castle Crashers is copyrighted, but maybe it could be sold in our store so we sell more and he sells less, avoiding a law trial?

I figured as much. More popularity for CC. :)

This guy gave us a poster, said he was a big fan. He was selling them at NY comic-con last year.

all seems to be well then :P

It IS good publicity, but still, it DOES belong to The Behemoth, so they should at least be notified.
