i bought the horror pop pack from itch.io a year ago and idk if i make a game out of it will i be copyrighted?
i mean like when i make a game using Pop tilesets and i make it for commercial use for example i wanna sell the game for 2$ but im using the pop tileset will i get copyrighted even if i bought the pack a year agocopyrighted to whom?
your game will always be copyrighted to yourself, while the graphics will be used under the licence you purchased when purchasing those sets.
I strongly suggest you go to the commercial discussion section of this board and read the discussions about copyright there, because based on the wording of your question you don't fully understand what copyright is.
that sentence alone shows that you don't know what a copyright is.but im using the pop tileset will i get copyrighted even if i bought the pack a year ago
thank you very much you have explain everything that i need to know i very much appreciated itthat sentence alone shows that you don't know what a copyright is.
as I said above:
1) Your game will always be copyrighted to yourself,unless you go into a contract to specifically sell the rights to your game.
WHAT that licence is we cannot tell you - you have to READ that licence to know what you can do with your purchase.
If we go by the licences from this website's shop alone, there are half a dozen different licences available, as indicated by the symbols on each shopsite.
some purchases are for non-commercial only (which means you can make a game but cannot sell that game, it has to be given away free) but most purchases from this shop allow for commercial use (that is selling your game) without royalties (that means you don't have to give away any part of those sales.
Most purchases here are limited "maker only" whichmeans they can only be used inside one of Degica's Maker programs - but some of them are "any prrogram" which means they could be used in Unity or other makers.
And there are other restrictions possible.
So you need to read that licence that you purchased a year ago to determine what you can do with those resources - because sometimes even the same product might be sold with different licences.
For example years ago Degica had a section of "non-maker-licences" where the same products that are now sold as "maker-only" where available for other programs for a higher price.
And the same could be with your purchases elsewhere - ONLY the licence text that is included with your purchase can tell you what you are allowed to do with those resources.
So you have to read that textfile.
If you have problems understanding it, THEN you can come back here, post the sentences you don't understand and we can try to explain them to you.
But no one here will give you an answer without even knowing which licence you purchased.
