For your perfect attendance and donut eating expertise
Your efforts and diligence have not gone unnoticed, and you have been given a small token of appreciation.
Getting the balance on Copyright law right.
Thought I better ask this here rather than through discord. Hope you don't mind.
I've been adding content to Fallout Shelter: The Board Game as a copy of it has come into my possession via Sakaratte. I am looking for some guidance as to basically how much we can get away with scanning and uploding to the wiki.
Unlike what its name suggests, there's no board as such. There are a lot of cards however which act both as cards in a regular game and fill the same function as a board (kinda like you construct the board as you go).
I'm aware there's generally an exception for copyright for reviews, which is where I understood the wiki to fall under, so I've uploaded a select number of cards targeting the more "iconic" fallout things.
However its been suggested to me that I scan and upload the lot citing transformative use, and maybe adding a watermark. To me I feel this is probably too far, as it would allow someone to essentially recreate the game (less the plastic tokens).
I know Trading Card Wikis generally scan everything, but to me thats a little different as they typically have rules that you need the physical version of the card at least for tournament play, meaning the scanned copy isn't a subsitute in those cases.
- Sorry for the late response, for whatever reason I only just now saw a notification for this. I'm not a lawyer, but in my experience uploading scans of cards to wikis hasn't been an issue (see Yu-Gi-Oh, Binding of Isaac: Four Souls off the top of my head). I don't know where the watermark idea comes in or why though. I've asked for a second opinion from Kirkburn, who has a little more experience here.
