Game Theory: The FNAF 7 Oopsie! Scott's Problem With Fanart

    Just a little while ago, Scott Cawthon resurfaced with a FNAF 7 teaser image that was quickly removed because - SHOCKER - it contained fan created models of the FNAF characters. If that sounds complicated, the short of it is that Scott (or rather his team) used fanart in their official teaser image. Those of us who have been on the internet for a little while know that is a big no-no. Yet if Scott owns the characters, but the fan artist owns the fanart, who has a right to the art? It's the big copyright paradox! Today I aim to unravel that knot!

    Notice how his voice went from sounding like he was on the brink of tears to his normal voice very quickly.

                      I'll be honest. If they had mistaken fanart for Scott's.....Scott should really consider training, for lack of a better term, an Apprentice.

                      Edit: I would.

                                              Hey is it still copyright if I bought a white woollen t-shirt, but then added my own logo/picture to it, and copyrighted the logo myself. What would happen then, if I wanted to sell that for the exact money for a normal t-shirt? Just asking, cause im planning to do my own march eventually. :)
