Again: NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. Nintendo would yell "bloody murder." I have an idea! Let's complain about copyright law on the internet! Totally new and original!

Yeah Nintendo is kind of bitchy about their copyrights for some reason Razz.

Hummm they can make tshirts of quotes from the series though.

no merchandise seems like it would be the case.
But that doesnt mean they can post Screenshots and Stencil Diagrams as well as Stencil Sites.... lol

I mean... It would technically be official...
Though they could technically sell it...
Just giving people a way to have something that is Official is the idea... a memory...

Mapping out a Stencil would Be costless and They wouldnt have anything on back order because THey dont actually buy anything. Theyre just giving people the ability to make their own shirts....

The only Payment they can Recieve is Donations from what I understand : /

Honestly, it shouldn't be too tough to make a shirt or two.

T-shirts or other non-representative merchandise would be perfectly fine, as long as it featured something specifically original, or directly parodic. So, Kirby doing his Silence of the Lambs impression would be out. But the Lakitu would be fine. So would Luigi in his trench coat. Specific quotes taken out of context would also be fine.

Hell, the title itself is copywritable, if they haven't done it already.


Selling a DVD, of course, is pretty much out of the question. They could try getting permission from Nintendo, but a positive response is far from guaranteed. Without permission, they'd be on shaky legal ground - there's no solid evidence this is a direct parody, because it mixes so much together. And since the line between legal and illegal in these cases is often the blurry one between parody and satire, it could be a tough case. Ultimately not worth it.

This isn't to say Nintendo might not take a shine to these guys, depending on how successful the series ends up being. And that's an entirely different can of worms.

I don't think that merchandise is that great of an idea. Though the series has done well with one episode, i don't think that it's the right time to consider what kind of financial ventures could be made. For what i can tell TWBB is a labor of love, a real love letter to the nintendo franchises we all know and grew up with.
The funding for this project should come from us, the fans, as sort of a way that we are paying to see more.

I completely agree.
Also, the current fanbase isn't nearly large enough to justify it yet. :p

Yeah, though i'm pretty sure the discussion was about future productions if the series becomes big.

They confirmed that they already filmed episode 2, so we know it's only a matter of time.

I think they're all about the same length.

I think he means he wants there to be more than one episode, not each episode being longer than the first.
