Game Theory: The FNAF 7 Oopsie! Scott's Problem With Fanart

    SUBSCRIBE for More Theories! ►
    Just a little while ago, Scott Cawthon resurfaced with a FNAF 7 teaser image that was quickly removed because - SHOCKER - it contained fan created models of the FNAF characters. If that sounds complicated, the short of it is that Scott (or rather his team) used fanart in their official teaser image. Those of us who have been on the internet for a little while know that is a big no-no. Yet if Scott owns the characters, but the fan artist owns the fanart, who has a right to the art? It's the big copyright paradox! Today I aim to unravel that knot!

    Hey mat, I have a question (#booktheory anyone?) If someone were to take a chunk of writing from a book, and voice act it (and animate it in a M.A.P.) and earn money on that video, is that a copyright infringement??
