^I don't think they could with Crush being a thing already

I doubt it.  Why would they go after crush when they were laughed at for wanting to copyright candy?  And I mean laughed at, which is why they stopped pursuing it in the first place.  They realized they can't just choose popular words from the english language just because they have an app with the word in it.

what even happened to them? i haven't heard any candy crush hype for a while now. is it even still in the app store?

sorry for ot but not ot but still is ot

Yeah, most companies that create animated shows and movies have a different copywrite law than say, an artist who does nothing but art and create OCs.

These characters are allowed to be used a references, and there are many reasons behind this. Many companies will develop a creature or person that you can identify as a very close image to another character from a show that was developed by a different company.

Also, when people make fan arts for these shows it helps give them publicity, so they use that as a form of advertisement. When it comes to simply posting an image from the show/movie, heavily referencing an image, or taking/slightly changing a fan artist's work this would fall under the category of theft. A lot of companies are considered publicly owned, so there's a lot of things they can't try to sue someone for.

Also, there are a lot of fan art images floating around. If they tried to stop everyone they wouldn't have time to things that could make them more money like developing more episodes. The only time I would consider it theft is if all someone sold on here was fan art, and was making a decent profit from it; since all they are doing is taking other people's ideas, and never coming up with their own.

Seems like this is pretty quiet now,

since it cleared some things for me,
now the dude expert on the subject.

It is a tough subject with no easy answers.
As far as GASR is concerned you are allowed to sell fanart of bigger copyrighted characters (pokemon, animes, etc) without receiving a warning for art theft.

Now creating a fanart of a member's OC would be considered art theft unless you ask the person and they say it's okay.

If you are at all afraid of getting in trouble then you can always choose not to sell fanart.
There are plenty of people online who sell prints of copyrighted characters like zelda, mario, etc etc with no legal repercussions.

I remember vin told me how the creator of homestuck felt that it was okay to sell homestuck related things because you were selling your interpretation of the character and not the character themselves.

a clarification: andrew hussie has actually requested that fanart of HS only be sold with the his direct permission through official channels. howeverrrrrr he's been pretty clear that commissioned fanart is aokay, because what you're paying for is the artist's interpretation? so yeah that's kind of a strange line, but when you're paying for a one-off thing vs like a print situation where you're profiting in multiplicity it's a different situation.
