Adoptable Discussion Post

Howdy everyone!

We’ve started to see an increase in the number of questions and bewares involving adoptables so it’s time for a discussion post. We’d love to hear your thoughts on adoptable transactions. Some things we’d love to hear about:

-Reselling, Trading, and Gifting. What do you allow as a seller? What do you avoid as a buyer? Does the type of art being resold (one adopt, an adopt with new pieces of art, or an adopt that has been made into a fursuit) change the way you feel about this?

-Design Rights. If a new piece of reference art is created for an adopt can the customer now sell the design? What rights do you think an artist has to a design they create?

Those are only a few questions to get a conversation going. Please feel free to leave any and all thoughts you have about adopts as long as you:
- Don’t name artists, species, or customers by name. This isn’t a beware post. Keep it anonymous.
- Try to keep the conversation on the transactions around adoptables and not to the concept of adoptables themselves. People love adoptables! We want to know your thoughts on the business side.
- Keep it civil.

We look forward to your discussion!

I guess I allow anything as a seller. I have no particular rules. I have so many adoptables out there (I also gave like a bunch away for free at one time) that I wouldn't be able to really keep track, nor do I want to.

I've really only bought two adoptables ever and don't do much of anything with them so I never thought much about what I'd do as a buyer. I would probably just gift them if I didn't want them anymore. I don't think I see anything wrong with gifting. o:

-Design Rights:

Are you talking about when someone sells an adoptable and includes all art made for that adoptable, even if it came from other artists? I think I would ask for permission first from said artists before listing the adoptable in a sale. I sometimes sell adoptables that had other art made for them and I just don't put that art up in the sale of the post, since it's not mine to advertise.
