Does anyone know how fanart copyright (commercial use) works?
I do fanart avatars and buddy icons (for social media profile use, samples below) of popular cartoons and pop culture characters. I usually upload them, free to download, under the CC By-NC license.
I notice some small shops here use the design to sell shirts and other merchandise (illegal) but they can still sell some. So I was just wondering if there’s a way to do this legally? Tried emailing Marvel and Toei but no luck.
