      where do you draw the line between fandom and stealing? What implications could a case like this cause? whats next? suing the millions who also have cartoon character tats? This is ludicrous. If they were pro models banking from the tats i could see it, but why sue long time fans who support and spread word about your games?

    I don’t find it copyright. It’s our body’s and we aren’t stealing anything. We aren’t copyrighting, we are more like advertising if anything.. this is dumb. They shouldve known that people ARE gonna get tattoos of halo and such so why couldn’t they announce that when they released halo instead of jumping on people who had absolutely no idea. This whole thing makes Microsoft look bad, not the ones with gamer tattoos.

    This is 100% fake. There is no way on this earth or any other that Microsoft would send a letter worded as it’s written or sue anyone over derivative work like a tattoo. There is no legal basis for it. Obviously whoever started this ridiculous rumor has no idea how copyright or IP law works.

      Actually, they pull stupid shit like this all the time. I had some of my art on Etsy reported even though it was only “inspired by” a design. Microsoft can eat all the dicks.

        Its different when your making money off of someone’s intellectual property through sales of items that are made (not by request of a client). A tattoo artist is not ‘selling’ a tattoo they are giving the tattoo, the are making and designing, but selling is something they are not doing. If a tattoo artist is trying to sell you a design -like really pushing you to get X, than they are a bad tattoo artist.
