Quote from: Cowpunk on January 13, 2010, 12:58:36 PMThis is a bit tricky. Parody is OK by US law, and we are talking trademark law not copyright, so a parody of a work would be fine. However you could still be sued by the rights holder even if they lost. Now trouble is far more likely when the trademark owner is a US company than when it is a Japanese company.So for example a parody dojinshi using characters from a Disney or Marvel title is not as safe as one from a manga series published in aJapanese magazine like Animal. In fact the editors of Animal may want to buy a copy if they see it.Now individual cons may have different policies on such publications. Of course you could just do an original dojinshi, after all that is how Shirow started out with publishing Black Magic. - Gilles, I think I know what I'm talking about, Poitras
