$85-$100? I thought character refs were usually like $30 or something.

I guess because it's not just a ref sheet, but rights to a character! Though a ref sheet for $30 seems really cheap as well;;;;

Technically, you can only license out something protected by copyright and the "buyer" doesn't actually own the character.

Sorry but I'm not really understanding how buying an OC for that much money can be justified. I mean, congratulations on making a great profit out of the picture and all but I'm really confused here.

That's "technically," but with adoptables people are making designs and selling the rights to them. From there, they can license or copyright the character if they wish to. And unless you're dealing with some shady people, morally the character belongs to them and you're not going to see the seller using them themselves for profit or trying to sell them again, etc.

And that's alright, it's not something that really needs to be understood if it's not where your interests lie. But selling character designs isn't a new things; companies buy character designs all the time. Either way, I hope this helps to get a bit more understanding on the adoptable thing!

It's still not protected by law though. If you sold an "adoptable", you could choose to sue buyers for copyright infringement.

I still don't understand the "adoptables" fad at all, but it's more successful than just advertising commissions and your designs are very pretty so I think I'll get into it.

Actually, I'm not entirely sure about that. It's really no different from Nintendo buying the rights for Pokemon and Mario when they originally bought them off of their owners. The buyer is buying the copyright to those characters, not the artwork, so there is no copyright infringement for the buyer to use those characters in commercial or non-commercial works UNLESS there was a contract signed to say they can only use it for non-commercial uses. Then again as there is no contract as such to begin with that I know about.... who knows who has what legal grounds.

The thing is though, there's no contract. Sure, there'll be comments detailing the exchange on DA but that's the only evidence a judge would have if poo hit the fan... Hypothetical situation, of course.

Nintendo has written contracts and have left a paper trail.

Most people on DA don't.

It's a blessing and a curse that not everyone on DA knows about copyright, but it's interesting either way.
