There is an exterior "store" selling products related to Echochrome, without Sony's consent?

Link please?

This would possibly alter my position.

Homelings have only trademarked the name, "Homelings".

Here is a link to the store. We are not selling "Echochrome" items Smiley Happy

Uh-oh.

The products "flag", "flourish", "popart" and "eyepatch" clearly use in-game graphic content.

Buckallmighty may have a solid point.

While one could argue that the contents of the game are largely based on the iconic, now public domain works of M.C. Escher and those works were used at no cost to Japan Studios, that could only apply to concept. The graphical content is soley owned by Sony and it's subsidiary.

Is there a current concensus in the Homeling community on this issue?

If not, one may need to be developed.

Side question:

Where are the proceeds from these sales allocated?

Our flag dosn't use any Home content or Echochome content, that is our logo, nothing more.

Look at the flag again. What are the floating Homelings wearing?

That IS in-game graphic content.

Any and all proceeds from Homeling store sales (which are actually next to nil) are given back to the Collective in the way of content within Home via contests, giveaways, etc, or go toward yearly fees incurred by our website.

As far as legalities are concerned, it has yet to be an issue. Free advertising is not really a bad thing Smiley Happy

Nothing you have said invalidates my statements.

So the sales of Sony property pays for the servers and self-promotion.

There may be more to this story than I realized.
