Game Cases Question

17 replies 146 views Edited May 11, 2013

Hi Guys!,

 

I was wondering would any of you pay for a custom box art such as this.

Spoiler

 

(Without the Watermark of course) That also included a brand new case for it to go in.  If you would pay for something like this,  how much would you pay?

I honestly wouldn't pay for any custom game sleeve.

In fact, I'd assume the seller would be breaking some kind of copyright laws, wouldn't they?

The community.

I had some friends and others interested in them and that have payed me to make them.

So I was just wondering if people are interested in things like this, So that I could decied if opening up an online shop with a bunch of them could create a small source of income while I'm still in school.

Ahhhh, okay. I would look into the laws before you open up a website to sell custom sleeves/cases.

It's one thing for your friends to pay you for your work, but developers/publishers might look at it differently if they see a website selling custom sleeves with artwork of their copyrighted characters/games.

Yea that's what I was thinking. I typically just give them away.  And I've been looking for copyright laws and such , but It hard to find them.
