  1. Using Music from a previous RPG Maker

    Hello, I’m currently using RPG Maker MV and want to use music from RPG Tsukūru 2, which is an SNES version released in 1996 by ASCII. Would I be able to use this music for a game released commercially? Would owning the physical game help?
  2. [RPGMMV] How does copyright work with artwork outside the game itself?

    So everything you legally buy for RPG Maker MV is fair to use in any of the programs, but what about, say, if you have promotional art or extra content of a character that features one of the default actors or one made using the character generator from RPG Maker MV? Is that sellable? Is it not...

    Commercial use of Default Resources - RPG Maker MV

    I have a question. Can we modify the Default resources in RPG Maker MV (Tile sets, Char Sets, Iconset, Facesets, Backgrounds) using Image editing Software and rendering them through filters, changing their size, hue, opacity etc and use them in a Commercial Game ?

    Question about Fair Use

    I'm making a game for my grandfather's birthday that I would probably like to post later(free/nonprofit) to show off and he's a huge Donald Duck fan. So, my idea was to play as Donald and save Daisy from a tower like in a fairy tale. Then I realized that Disney is cutthroat about their...

    Copyright Cheating?

    I have wondered for awhile, if you copied character design from another game/anime BUT you leave their face blank then that mean you don't violate copyright, is that true? Well, here are 2 of example: Stick Z: Super Dragon Fight, +5,000,000 installs...
  8. Is it allowed to use Sprite Maker resources elsewhere?

    A long time ago, I created a sprite using the sprite creator on this website. I have since edited it very much, but the original sprite was still created using the sprite maker. Would I get in trouble for using this sprite outside of RPG Maker Web (e.g. in a game written using a different game...

    Regarding copyright laws.

    I'm not sure where the correct forum is to post these questions, and they are probably dumb questions. But here goes. I've been working on a game for a while now, and so far I'm quite happy with the results. At first, I was planning on releasing it only for me and my friends, but I've been...

    The Youtube Audio Library for music/sfx resources?

    Can I use the YouTube Audio Library music in a free, non-commercial game? Just curious. I was making a small indie game for free, non intended for Steam or even itch.io, just a game for the small community I'm apart of. Is it ok as long as I credit and link to the original source via credits...

    What does RPG Maker own when it comes to your content? (Dev Input?)

I dont know the real company (companies?) that own this website, but i am referencing them when it comes to saying RPG Maker. So as a child of two parents who went to law school... i find this in the terms...

    ...after the unfolding of this topic, i began to hesitate to use RPG Maker with my "original" (not fangames from established RPG franchises) projects due to copyright (and artistic freedom) issues.
