Artist alley -- If art or merch is determined to have been plagiarized, traced, or copied from other art, official art, or merchandise, the artist selling it will be expelled from the AA. Artists may not sell another’s work translated into a new medium (e.g. perler bead art of official game sprites, art made with stencils cut from screenshots, or paintings of someone else’s photographs). They may not sell art that is directly redrawn from the art of another or an “official” source. Exceptions are made to this in the case they have permission from the creator.
To summarize; fanart is fine, copying someone else’s work is not.
Vendor Hall -- Bootleg or pirated merchandise is not allowed in the VH. If a vendor is found to be selling physical merchandise impersonating a brand or replicating a copyrighted design (like unauthorized plushies, figures, or apparel) or unauthorized copies of digital content (like CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays, or video games) they will be expelled from the VH.
If a merchant is found to be in violation of these rules, they may be ejected or banned at our discretion.
