There is a game package "paintown" ; pushed to stable
F28, currently in updates-testing for F27 . I installed the game from updates-testing
and noticed that the game seems to use copyrighted assets - it features characters from
franchises such as Street Fighter, Marvel comics, and Dragon Ball. While I'm not 100%
certain if the assets themselves are copyrighted - it's possible they are not ripped
from other games, but rather fan-made spritesheets - I'm pretty sure that the use of
the characters themselves constitutes as infringement. As such, I think the package should
be pulled before it causes us any legal troubles.
Agreed. I'm on it.
