Example given:
I wanna make an online community about Gundam. While "Gundam" word is licensed by Sunrise, can i still use it as a part of community name?
Will I face a lawsuit for using that word, eventhough i operate the non-profit organization? The organization won't be engaged in trading activities.

Thanks.
Unless it is not a registered organisation under any goverment's business registry, it is okay I think.

Or simply substitute the word "Gundam" with "mecha" to avoid frivolous copyright lawsuits.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Trademarking is the issue you would need to look up here. I don't know how things are elsewhere in the world, but in the US a company can lose their rights to a trademark if they don't aggressively defend it when someone else uses it. So you can use it, but any company with the trademark may file a legal notice if and when they find out.

Is there any official art with regards to Taokaka's real face underneath her hood? She is a character from Blazblue.

How does an aniota like me deal with the Hallyu so to speak? Japanese Culture has been on the decline in Vancouver and the Hallyu has in a side effect reduced the Japanese Culture venues to bare essentials, given the fact another anime store closed where I live this year consecutively is enough to raise concerns about how should I face this. One way was to travel to Seattle where the Hallyu isn't as badly felt but I like to know other ideas.

I'll be damned if I ever thought it would mean that. The only thing that came to mind was The Leopard Society. His post makes a lot more sense now.

Is it that 'blame everything on Korea' thing, that seems to be so popular according to Sankaku?
Even though we are an anime forum, we don't have to follow every stupid thing Japan comes up with, right...

Aye, it may simply be the "next new thing" fad in progress. J-pop was last decade's fad with the short-attention span crowd and now it is K-pop culture. J-pop won't go away (any more than any other fad), you just have to work a little harder to find it.

My problem we are reduced to bare essentials and any chance I can expose myself to more venues is a good thing.

Anyone know what these are called?

Shot in the dark, but figured since this forum has a bunch of users maybe someone will recognize it:



It's a globe roughly six or so inches wide filled with some fluid that swirls around when it's turned on. Has a light inside. It was pretty cool looking, used to have one back in the 90s but dunno whatever happened to it. Wanted to look around online to see if I could find one to buy, but can't for the life of me figure out how to search for it heh.

Anyone know?

That actually sounds pretty cool.

Have no idea what it is, though.

Used to have a globe that had liquid swirling inside when you turned it on, but that was for cleaning air and it looked different.

I also doubt they had anything like that in the 90's, was a fad in Hong Kong around 2007 I think.

Doesn't really look like one, though.

Legally, it depends on the jurisdiction.
