Want ad violation?
Can someone explain this post on rpg-directory to us?
This looks like a want ad for people to pretend to be Disney characters as part of some kind of fantasy role-playing game. That part we aren’t too sure about, since we haven’t been involved in fantasy role playing since we played a bit of Dungeons and Dragons in high school and we’re long over that (except for the fact that Steve never did apologize for making us take a stupid saving throw against constitution after drinking a beer even though we were a huge, hulking fighter and it was just one drink an hour earlier, but we rolled a one and ended up falling off that ledge and plunging to our death, which was total BS).
What we are sure about is that this ad is just full of potential Disney copyright violations. First of all, the person seems to be using a copyrighted image of Jasmine as a personal photo, which is not only definitely a massive, actionable copyright violation, but is also a huge case of false advertising unless the poster just happens to look exactly, precisely like a princess drawing.
Second, this is a call for people to pretend to be Disney characters, which is a trademark violation, defamation of character, identity theft, and fibbing. What if someone pretending to be a Disney princess slew a dragon, said a curse word, littered, or robbed a bank? Think of the implications! And the scandal!
Why can’t people learn to leave poor, defenseless Disney characters alone and just be themselves?
