Chiptune Commission

Hello everyone,

I opened up for commissions for chiptunes (old-school video game-style songs) and one of my watchers sent me $20 to do a cover of the "Adventure Time" theme song. Is this even legal, considering I'll probably post it on FA? If not, I should probably refund the money.

I took a request for a public-domain hymn a few years ago, but this is entirely different.

Thanks for any advice.

There's no such thing as "patent" on designs, but yes, his designs are very easily recognizable.

Also if someone were selling them as a set of "Homestuck Troll Horns"...it's pretty freaking obvious.

I don't blame him for wanting to keep his Intellectual Property in his own control, especially since he does sell merch.

He's a visual artist, not a physical artist. You're not making sense?

There's no reason for me to have a design patent for my character designs as they are 2-D
