Selling hacked skins

Well i had this idea on how to make points and im not sure if its legal or not. My idea was to hack up custom weapons and sell them for points, they wont be released to anyone who wants it only to the buyer of the skin. So basically im just wondering if its ok to sell custom skins in private transactions.

    If you're talking about ported weapons, it's illegal and it's being processed on this website.

    If they're based on any coyprighted work, it's illegal. Actually, it's illegal whether you sell them or not.

    But that's the law. I'm not telling you to obey it, I'm just telling you what the law thinks of it. I'm not telling you to disobey it either.

    Unless you get the authors consent, then no. We don't need more of that second life shit.

    A while ago, a member of FPSB found a bunch of weapon skins that had been made from this community on second life. The people that stole the skins never asked permission, and never gave credit. They then proceeded to sell the skins to users of the game in exchange for that games currency.

    It wasn't pretty. I can't remember, but legal action was threatened I believe. So yea, what you're doing may not be a good idea.

    And by that you must mean hacking up some already-existing work. Unless the author allows that, it's illegal. Although, you're right about one thing: It's not stealing, but it's still copyright infringement. Actually, it's intellectual property infringement, but I hate that word. "Intellectual property". We can own ideas now? Screw that.

    The main reason why it wouldn't have been pretty was because in Second Life you can take your ingame money and turn it into real money. That's probably why it was such a big deal. There was also a lawsuit in Second Life because some guy stole another guy's ding-dong script...and by ding-dong I mean penis.

    I think it might be best to PM Tom about this one, since it is his site.
