Alert to all members
As this has become an increasing problem I'm going to address EVERYONE at once.

When submitting content to the BGS you MUST either own the copyright to said content OR have permission to use it.

This goes for everything submitted to media. Fan Fiction, Fan Characters, Comics, etc.

A big problem as of late it the fan character profile images. I have removed several images over the past month that were either minor edits of official images OR blatent rip offs/use of another artist's creation. Neither is tolerated.

Now as BGS IS a fan site we do allow editing of official SEGA art to an extent. You cannot copy/paste/rearrange official art, nor can you simply apply a filter of some kind/color or otherwise. If you want to use edits of official art you must put some effort into it.

Under NO circumstances though can you use or edit another person's fanart without their expressed permission. And when you do you MUST credit them.

Now to clarify giving credit and getting permission are NOT the same thing. The only time giving credit is permission is when the artist has said to give credit to use. Other then that you must ask and receive permission from the artist.

Permission can only ***umed when the work is under a lisense (such as creative commons) that gives permission for the work to be used or if the artist has actually said the work can be used.

Terms of Service - Submissions
Members who continue to violate the TOS in this way will be subject to having their upload privileges suspend/banned or other administrative action.



Now look, I'm not trying to be mean. I don't have a choice in the matter. Posting content like this is in violation of copyright laws. If I don't remove/block this type of content the BGS and I are subject to legal actions if the original artist chooses to pursue them.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing with C4.
