    Like If I wanted to make an Adidas shirt with the Adidas logo, would making such a custom shirt be banned due to trademark violations or anything like that? I think I saw Akatsuki stuff in the CBT so im not rly sure...

    Basically they reserve a right to modify, remove UGC content or even ban your account under such a circumstance. (Infringement of Copyright included.)

    But I doubt they'll ban someone unless actual copyright holder issue a takedown notice or request.

    Hmm. So I'm guessing as long as I don't actually use the same name and exact same trademark image I. E. If I modify one of the adidas stripes or something, I will reduce my chance of getting in some trouble?

    That will probably be fine.

    TBH, unless Nexon has some tool that scans textures and a library of trademarked logos, I doubt they'll police EVERY SINGLE ITEM that is created. Seriously. According to @Spadow they only banned 1 person during CBT and it was because their UGC item was highly offensive and inappropriate.

    I was wondering about that too. If this game was a Chinese game I don't think they'd care if a company said "This is copyright infringement."
    So what if you made things from your favorite shows, would anyone care? Cause I feel like real life popularized shows and game item knockoffs would be a great success.

    I believe it was a total of 3 people who got banned in the last CBT (1 ahegao mask + 2 naked custom clothes).
    As long as clothing aren't publicly offensive, you shouldn't get into any sort of trouble.
    I'm super excited to find out TriaTV's talented UGC artists!

    Btw, 1:1 support is now accepting claims of infringement (at both personal or company level)

    Interesting to hear Mino. I kind of doubt that Nike etc would really submit a claim for what is essentially an image. I guess we will see though.
