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!

    Thanks for addressing this. It’s uncomfortable, and I hate that I happen to be in the middle of it, but it’s a good thing for everyone to understand and talk about. The bottom line is that regardless of where copyright law may be fuzzy or not, the fans in the community have to come first, and any company that doesn’t see it that way is doomed to fail.

    I’m not sure if anyone has adressed this, but can we get a brilliant applause for the new format? Its interesting and keeps the interest on the screen without having the person’s interest required at all times! Pretty brilliant~

    The ironic thing is he can’t even showcase the photo of The Eiffel Tower at night in his video of copyright laws.

  14. Brad Kenneth says:

    This topic is making me sick. We need a petition to fix those laws. Mentioned in the video.
