Hasbro & Botcon Has Reversed Ban on Fan Art Sales.

 

"We're pleased to announce, per Hasbro, that artist tables will be allowed at BotCon 2012 as we have allowed it in the past, and will be permissible as part of the show. Hasbro sympathizes and understands fans' discouragement with the previous statements concerning fan art, and while remaining steadfast in the right to protect its IP in regards to unlicensed merchandise, wants to ensure fans can continue to enjoy the BotCon experience which they know is made so great in large part by the fan community."

Seibertron is reporting also though the source is a member of TFW2005. But nothing that is truly reliable

Props to Hasbro if it's true. It's a good call, and I appreciate their willingness to admit a bad decision.

Humm... Hasbro never really took away artists rights to display their art, only to sell it.

 

Now one way to read that post is that yes, hasbro is letting them sell it like they have in the past.

 

But it could also mean that hasbro is simply restating that they never did take away the ability to have a table to DISPLAY artwork, just you cannot sell it. Its a very vague statement IMO.

 

 

Never the less... the damage has been done here. It will be a uphill battle to regain trust now, especially since quite a few artists were going to take a major financial hit because of this fopah, some of which probably needed the money for living expenses and supply's...
