I think that may have been just miss labeled. I pic I provided is our Homeling Flag, the other one was made by a member. We hold several graphic contest, to see who could get their content on article of clothing.

we're still pretty much the same buck , just having fun and trying to help others . it was my idea to trademark the name so as to avoid being trolled and for various other reasons . as far as making money , our website isn't free , us in Generals council have been paying it since they started charging . it's not cheap either . we also give out prizes at various gatherings and such . the store was mainly created so we could have real life Homeling items . as far as the using other peoples content thing goes , do you think any advertiser pays Levis , Wrangler , nike ect. when one of the actors making a Ford commercial happens to be wearing their clothing ? for that matter , Sony should pay US for all the free advertising of Echochrome ... (:


Yes, they do, which is why you won't see brand names in a lot of things. If you ever see a brand name in a commercial, TV show or movie, it's because they've paid to be there, or at least received legal clearance to use it.

 

I just wanted to clear that point up. There's no trademark infringement in what the Homelings are doing because there's no infringement of a trademarked property. You can't trademark "look and feel" and individual graphical elements require individual trademarks. The Home logo itself is trademarked, so people cannot use that in commercial products without authorization from Sony legal. I know a guy who changed the logo of his show because of that a while back.

Aeryn_James Added_Joyfully:

 

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.

 :^/ I'm seeing more of an Andy Warhol influence, and not really any M. C. Escher influence, myself.
