DigitalGarden Posted June 23, 2022 Share Posted June 23, 2022 I don't know where to post this, if it's in an incorrect subforum then please move this. But this is weird, probably a bit controversial. The assets are 7 years old. They're a bunch of horse-themed, generic/fantasy item icons. No original characters or unique themes (worldbuilding, etc.) included. The assets have been commissioned from me for MovementSim, an old online horse sim. According to my own TOS, both I and the commissioner hold ownership of the art: this part has never changed over the years. The petsite is still listed in some directories, but it itself doesn't exist anymore: the url leads nowhere (movementsim.com) The last Twitter post is from 2017 (https://twitter.com/movementsim), meaning it's highly unlikely the owner is active at all. Are they even active anywhere online nowadays? Contacting them directly would help a lot, but I have no idea how at this point. As far as I remember, I wasn't explicitly told to not resell the assets, should the site goes permanently down and contact goes MIA Do these factors above mean the contract expired? I have absolutely no idea what would be a good move, if at all, if I'm going to be booed because "oh nuu you're making people pay again for art, you monster", or what. xD But personally I see no problem with this, since there are services where multiple people can pay to use the same assets made by one person. Like it happens in Unity Store or something. But I dunno, perhaps petsites are treated differently in terms of legal art handling. Should these assets remain in the Useless Limbo regardless? Or am I free to battle the economical inflation with them? x.x Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
