    Is it all right to use the Space Invaders' sprites on a drawing, or on a T-shirt, for example?

    I made a little hand-held game, as a test which have those little sprites just for test, and might put it in the Youtube.

    The thing is, I read some of the posts in some other forums and claimed that these sprites are copyrighted.

    Anyone have any ideas about the copyright of these sprites? :whistle:

    If you're not selling it (implicitly/explicitly), it should be fine...

    Hmm, I'm not selling anything - just demonstrating the game only with the sprite. :)

    The generic little pixelated monsters. So far I only had replicated one of the monsters, which is a 20-point type, on the Graphics LCD. Only one frame of it is replicated since I had to test the system. :thumb:

    The Atari 2600 ones are a little bit too big for the LCD, so I chose the arcade version instead since the majority of it uses 11x8 sprites.:whistle:

    I don't think anyone would actually sue you, even if they patented the sprites. :think:

    As long as you're not planning to "release" it (paid or otherwise), I won't worry about it at all.
