    Hey guys. I've thought about doing a video about this for a long time. Over the years of doing Game Theory, people have had one MAJOR problem with the series - the use of fanart. And since I'm covering the Scott Fan Art Issue as well, I figured what better day than today to address it. I've done my best to set rules in place to keep fanart out of Game Theory but accidents happen and things slip through the cracks. Today I am setting the record straight on Game Theory and fanart. Plus, hopefully giving you fan artists some advice on how to keep your fanart from being stolen.

    I really empathize with Mat here. The guy is legitimately doing his best to protect the rights and creative works of these artists. It's something I was unaware was such a rampant problem, and it's awesome to see that it is taken so seriously on their end.

    I'm an artist, and after listening to this, I completely agree. I sometimes forget to sign my art. And at that point, I feel like it would be bratty of me to play the victim card and point fingers at anyone that unknowingly uses it. It's just not right. If you forget to sign your creations and still post them on the Internet, you just gotta suck up the consequences. If anything, ask *_kindly_* for it to be taken down so you can get another chance to put a signature on. It's no one else's mistake but yours if you don't sign tbh.

    I spent 10 minutes before I realised this is about video game theory and not economic game theory...

    Tbh I'm not great at art so if anything I draw ends up in your video, them I would be happy! Why don't people understand it's not always about attention. Simply knowing it was yours should be enough in my opinion

    As a member of several fandoms and a consumer of fan art...I can say that fan artists are some of the most entitled and whiny douchebags on the internet. They get so defensive and bitchy when someone "steals" their fan art...yet they are actually stealing those characters and other copyrighted content to make said fan art. They also blow it way out of proportion and people who are seen as "art thieves" are treated worse than terrorists. Grow the hell up, fan artists. It's not the end of the world if someone posts one of your works without crediting you. Having someone refuse to pay you for a commission or blatantly lie that the art is in fact theirs when it's not is one thing...but when you complain that you just don't get credited or when people take your art and repurpose it in a transformative just sound like you're whining like "Waaaaahhh! It's MY art and I WANT people to KNOWWWW!" Get over yourself. You're not that important.

    Probably call videos like this, down time with matpat or "Let me level with you guys" series. Just a suggestion. It's been a while since I have seen your videos, plus you've noticed me in on of your GTLive streams. About a few years ago! :) Keep doing what you love and continue doing what you do Matthew! Stay awesome and have fun creating youtube Game theories!! :D

    It's funny...
    People get all butthurt when they think someone intentionally stole their fan art
    Or or some "white knight" gets all flustered for someone else's sake and starts wagging their finger
    But but clearly they didn't stop and think.
    This could be great exposure!
    Shucks I probably should have signed that before putting that out there, oh well lesson learned.
    Clearly this youtube person doesn't think he's getting away with "stealing" my fanart. Thousands of people watch him and obviously these people like the same genre so OBVIOUSLY at least one other person would recognize the fanart.
    I mean come on it'd be like robbing a bank, getting away with it and then going on tv the next day to say hey look at all this free money I found. Moronic! I don't know, I just think some people love to complain.

    To be honest, I’d be amazed if Matpat used my fan art in an episode of Game Theory. I’ve been watching Game Theory since at least “What We Missed!” Episode.

    Can I please slap the guy who thought it would be a good idea to make identical box cover art without a watermark. They deserve a good old slap in the back.

    If MarPat used my art I'd nerd out honestly. As someone who makes twitch banners for the smaller streamers for free, just because I enjoy it, I would live to see some of my art get on a bigger channel. Heck I've had friends take my art and get it tattooed on themselves and the only way i know about it is i see the Facebook posts after the fact.

    Best way to use fanart is to ask and then credit the artist probably... if its intentional use.. if its by mistake because they dont sign it or wattermark it then that is the artists problem... like I make bad art and still sign everything xD

    Wait, why is it more of a problem to "steal" and use fan-art than "stealing" and using official art? Shouldn't it be more of a problem when you use the actual real official art without permission?

    • Danta
      Danta 26 ngày trước

      You're stealing art from someone who isn't getting paid thousands to make that art with fan art official art nobody cares not even the company cause that's transformative use and the artist got paid and has exposure in the media already the fan artist potentially got nothing for the art and then you take it flash it around and now nobody knows who made it which could potentially kick start a real career in art for the fan artist if credited by someone as big as Matpat

    I just want to role my eyes in the back of My skull of that "Kirby Star Allies box art" tweet.

    People are such prick this days, how could you tell that from the official, and MatPat is telling a honest mistake. How could People be so pitty this day and age? It seems like they are tweeting about it beacause they seems to hate MatPat instead of actualy caring about the artist. 🙄
