Sorry, I know this was asked a while ago, but this seemed like an important enough question to warrant an answer as other people may come across this thread with the same question.

I've used someone else's IP before. The requests I sent were just plainly written questions, not anything crazy written in some special legal code.

"Mr. Smith,

I came across a drawing of yours posted on (URL). I want to use this drawing for (quick project description). May I have your permission to do so?"

Obviously the responses vary. Many people are ok with it and will give you permission for free. Some will refuse or want to sell you a license. If you do obtain permission, it is a good habit to save the conversation (save emails, screenshot IMs or Facebook messages, etc) for future reference.

I would also like to add 1 piece to this incredibly informative thread.

You are allowed to reference copywritted works, as long as it doesn't imply your product was produced by the company of said copywritten works, or doesn't defame the product/company you are referencing. You are obviously not allowed to use assets from other games, not build your game around the characters/story of a copywritten work, as outlined here.


unless this has been updated, I believe it to apply to all functional creations, including but not limited to games.
