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!

As a seller, I keep the rights for the artwork itself, but the only rule I have is that they can't resell my adoptable. Other than that, they can do what they want with it. As far as I'm concerned, I'm selling them a character design that they then own at that point.

I don't really sell any closed species, so I think it's a little easier for me in that regard. I'm not sure what copyright complexities would go into that.

There wouldn't be any copyright complexities. Adoptables and species aren't covered by anything, so you aren't technically selling anything.
