Rights, ownership & copyright of ASSETs

Are ASSETs copyrighted? Who owns all the rights to them? Find out here.

Who owns the ASSETs that I make in VoxEdit?

The creator of the ASSET owns 100% of the rights of that ASSET.

Who are ASSETs in The Sandbox copyrighted to?

As far as The Sandbox is concerned, all ASSETs in The Sandbox are copyrighted to the creator of that ASSET. As long as they do not violate another entities' existing copyright.

Can I make an ASSET of a Marvel / Disney / Pixar / Pokemon / Family Guy / Futurama / Other character which I do not own the rights to?

No. This would be a violation of international copyright and trademark laws. Your ASSETs must be unique and must not depict characters that you do not own the intellectual property rights for. Though The Sandbox strives to be decentralised, there are still laws that need to be respected and obeyed.

Are there any licencing rights?
